3 Ways to make the best of IFT – GreenEyedGuide recap of IFT 2016

At the 2016 Institute of Food Technologists Annual Meeting and Food Expo, I made three commitments. Those three commitments made this the best IFT expo I’ve ever attended. I’ll share these three commitments and an IFT recap, plus some bonus footage for the ultimate GreenEyedGuide fans.

Thank you all!

Why you should join GreenEyedGuide at the Annual Food Expo!

I am so excited to go to IFT this year! IFT is the annual expo of the Institute of Food Technologists. It’s fun to see how much the food industry is changing – just walk through the show floor for a glimpse at all the crazy food innovations (and more free samples than you could possibly know what to do with). This year I’m part of the IFT New Professional’s committee as well as an elected member of the Nominations and Elections committee. I would love to meet you GreenEyedGuide fans at the expo, but here are even more reasons to attend:

5 Tricks I Learned About Food Trade Shows the Hard Way – Day in the Life of a Food Scientist

I’ve been to many different food trade shows, but SupplySide West is one of my favorites. Out of nostalgia I’d like to reflect on some tips and tricks I learned along the way.

This is a series of posts in which I share snippets of what it’s like to be a food scientist. As a product developer for dry powder shakes, there are some lessons I never learned in school and some challenges I never saw coming.
