It's a Success! Global Food Forums®, Inc.'s 2016 Sweetener Systems Trends & Technologies Conference drew over 160 attendees, surpassing the organizers own expectations. We are now in the planning stages for a fall 2017 Sweetener Systems Conference.

Next year's event will once again be designed for technologists involved in product formulations. The program  will provide insights and actionable information on hot topics related to sweeteners. Examples of intended sessions include updates on consumer attitudes, formulating for sugar reduction, emerging technologies, nutritional aspects, sensory, regulatory and analytical issues. Core to the event will be the properties and interactions of a range of ingredients that impact the sweetness perception and performance of finished products.
