Suppliers’ Night 2022

May
2022
Location:

Pleasanton, CA

Overview:

Suppliers’ Night Is Coming May 10, Noon-7pm

Your Supplier’s Night committee is working diligently to plan the 2022 NCIFT Suppliers’ Night events. Due to Covid-19, we have not held an in-person Suppliers’ Night since 2019. We’ve all missed seeing each other and the opportunities that come from meeting the ingredient and service providers. We are planning in-person events including the Golf Outing (not a tournament – more of a 7 hour meeting with your best clients), Dinner, our Symposium, Student Poster Competition/presentation and the Exhibitor EXPO.  We trust that each member of NCIFT is doing their part to assure COVID is under control and in-person events can be held. You’ll find more information about the dates and golf/expo locations below so that you can mark your calendars now. In addition, rest assured that the committee is developing a symposium that will be interesting, timely and informative to all our NCIFT members. Our topic is ‘The Future of Food’.  You’ll be hearing speakers present their thoughts on what trends will prevail and what foods will be like in 20 years or so.  We have confirmed at least one international speaker who will be presenting virtually on this exciting topic.   

If you’re interested in helping the committee, please let me know – we can always use volunteers for the symposium and for assuring that the expo goes smoothly. Stay tuned for updates. If you haven’t already done so, please review your computer settings and assure that ncift.org and marketingdesigns.net are safe senders so that you will receive email updates. We are looking forward to seeing you all at Suppliers’ Night 2022.

A quick thank you to Ramsay Browne Chemical and Company who has arranged to provide hand and surface sanitizers for the Symposium and Expo.  We are looking for a sponsor who is willing to provide face masks for the events as well.  If interested, please contact Imelda or me.

Presentation: Gleaning Insights from Impossible Burger and Beyond to Gain Clarity into Clean Label Design
Speaker: Dr. David Lundahl, CEO InsightsNow (see bio below)

Clean label design presents a lot of challenges to food product developers and marketers.  Overcoming these challenges requires consumer insights into trust and transparency.  It requires knowing what is perceived to be safe, acceptable, healthy, functional and sustainable, and how to apply this knowledge to create and market products. This luncheon conversation will present insights into how Impossible and Beyond Burger are changing the definition of clean and what this means for food scientists and marketers.

Company:  Impossible Foods
Title:  Technology Platform for the Future of Foods
Meat is delicious, nutritious and loved by consumers across the globe. Unfortunately, it is also produced using an inefficient process that has not fundamentally changed since the Stone Age. This inefficiency leads to the production of 15% of global anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, loss of wildlife habitat and is responsible for 25% of the world’s fresh water consumption. In order to feed an expanding population, we need a new and more sustainable way to produce the meat, fish and dairy foods the world loves. Our solution is to replace animal-based foods with delicious, nutritious and affordable meat and dairy foods made from plants.

Speaker: Chris Davis, Research Fellow, Impossible Foods
