Bridging the gap between R&D, marketing and innovation

Welcome to the American Food Technology & Innovation Summit.  This year’s event will build upon previous years to focus on how you can harness new technologies and ingredients to improve performance for your entire project team.   Take this opportunity to leverage best practices across marketing and R&D to strengthen NPD and reduce time to market.

New for 2014:

  • Knowledge sharing brainstorm:  Identify replacements for sodium, PHOs and chemical preservatives
  • Interpret how branding impacts on consumer choice
  • Analyze consumer trends and demand for gluten free food
  • Sample new ingredients and see how they could enhance your products
  • More technical content, more on branding, and more networking opportunities!
Join us in Chicago for some thought-provoking discussion, inspiring case studies and structured meetings.
We look forward to seeing you there!





We expect over 200 food innovators, processors, and manufacturers to attend this annual gathering.
