With the overarching theme of “Food and Nutrition: Science for the Future,” the focus of the Institute for the Advancement of Food and Nutrition Sciences’ (IAFNS’) third annual Science Innovation Showcase includes a diversity of food science topics on innovative ingredients, products, and regulatory processes.

The event will be held virtually on December 12–14, 2023, from 12:00–5:00 P.M. ET daily, and will encompass nutrition and food safety issues. The showcase will bring together university, industry, venture investment, nonprofit, and government experts to review, discuss, and advance innovations.

The event will feature invited sessions with public sector leadership, such as government regulators with global responsibilities in the food and beverage ecosystem. There will be representatives from the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), The Good Food Institute, GS1 US, and Health Canada, as well as a science “storytelling” communication expert.

With the challenges of moving initial ideas into the market, this science-first and science-focused dialogue will include regulatory experts, innovation faculty, and nonprofit leaders. Speakers will discuss compliance for health products, product labeling, and traceability. The event will also feature next-generation topics, with dedicated sessions for graduate students and post-doctorates.

All stakeholders are invited to participate in this exchange of science related to innovative ingredients, products, and processes in the food and beverage ecosystem. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in dialogue and discussion on the data, technology, and science being applied across the food sector.
