2022 Protein Trends & Technologies Seminar header

Our next Protein Trends & Technologies Seminar will be held October 25-26, 2022 at the Westin NW Hotel, Itasca, Illinois, USA.

This product development event provides suppliers a valuable and focused opportunity to promote their plant and animal-based proteins and related ingredients to application scientist decision-makers at food and beverage companies. Such components typically include flavorings, taste and texture modifiers and natural preservatives among others.

Starting with one-on-one discussions with solution providers, R&D attendees can investigate ingredients that may provide answers to their protein formulation challenges.
