Batory Foods, a national sales and supply chain management solutions provider of commodity and specialty food ingredients, has launched Batory Smartboards, an insight and inspiration microsite for the food and beverage industry. The site was created to offer training, provide innovative application ideas and foster collaboration among potential partners.

Serving as an online community for various stakeholders, the platform will allow for sharing unique perspectives and experiences regarding the tools, insights, and resources necessary to thrive in the food, beverage, and nutrition/nutraceutical industries.

For instance, Batory’s sweetener specialists created scientifically based blends of sucrose replacers engineered for optimum performance in sugar reduction or replacement formulations for use across all applications while meeting FDA GRAS regulations. Sweet Essentials blends will not compromise flavor, texture or sweetness resulting in only the finest tasting experience.

Located at, the site is designed as an “all things food ingredients” home that aims to enhance customer experiences and showcase vendor capabilities. Visitors to the site can explore a wide array of content including innovative, on-trend product news, market insights, trend analysis, application recipes and case studies highlighting successful power partnerships with food, beverage and nutrition companies. In addition, the site will house on-demand assets like white papers, newsletters, infographics and survey results.
