(COVID-19) - 2020 Event Cancellation

Unfortunately, due to the accelerating pace and breadth of the spread of the coronavirus, Global Food Forums has made the very tough decision to cancel the 2020 Sweetener Systems Conference (March 24) and the 2020 Clean Label Conference (March 25-26), Itasca, Ill.

Our primary concern has always been the health and safety of our attendees and speakers. Given the recent explosion of travel and meeting restrictions, university closures, heightened warnings by government officials, rapid increase in the number of infections and the extremely contagious nature of this virus, Global Food Forums cannot guarantee the safety of its loyal attendees.

A separate email with more details is being sent to our attendees and speakers.

If you have any questions, please contact Jenny at Jenny@globalfoodforums.com or 1-847-226-2181.

The Sweetener Systems Conference (March 24, 2020) is the industry's only product development event dedicated to providing practical, impartial formulation advice to R&D and applied food scientists working on sugar-reduction and alternative sweetener projects.

It's a unique opportunity to invest in your professional development, expand your peer network with thought leaders in this dynamic field and find viable solutions to your formulation challenges.
