The Daily Dose of Dairy Live at the International Dairy Show

It’s less than three months until The International Dairy Show takes place in Chicago, my home town. And do I have a show planned for you!

The Daily Dose of Dairy will be live—every day--from the show floor at the iDairyShow Theater. If you cannot attend a session, need not fear, each session’s sponsor is making it possible for the slide show to be available on for later viewing.

Each presentation will feature 10 to 20 of the most innovative products in a specific dairy products category, including products never before featured as a Daily Dose of Dairy. Each day will be a different product category. Sessions will end with a Q&A.

Here’s the schedule. 
Innovations in Refrigerated and Frozen Dairy Desserts
Sunday, November 3, 1:00 to 1:30pm

Innovations in Yogurt and Cultured Dairy Foods—Sponsored by DSM

Monday, November 4, 1:00 to 1:30pm

Innovations in Cheese and Butter 
Tuesday, November 5, 1:00 to 1:30pm

Innovations in Milk and Other Dairy Beverages
Wednesday, November 6, 10:30 to 11:00pm

You also will not want to miss the keynote presentation: Insights on America’s Eating Patterns.

Wouldn’t knowing statistics and trends on the eating and drinking patterns of Americans help you make significant strategic decisions in the coming year?  Featured speaker, Harry Balzer, vice president of The NPD Group and an expert in food consulting and eating behavior, will share his knowledge. He has been following the eating and drinking patterns of Americans for 35 years and is the author of The NPD Group’s Annual Report on Eating Patterns in America, which is used by food industry leaders to make smarter business decisions and gain fact-based insight. Balzer is widely known within the industry as a main source for unbiased market information.

Other educational sessions at the International Dairy Show will include hot topics such as:
  • Trends in sweeteners
  • Nutrition updates
  • Mobile marketing sustainability
  • Operating small fleets
  • Natural gas fueling stations
  • Traceability
  • International opportunities
  • Government contracting
  • And more!
