Dairy Foods Make Headlines…and More!
I needed a travel/mental health day to get to and get in the mindset for Expo West/Engredion in Anaheim.
Not to disappoint….here are a few items for your reading enjoyment.
For starters, if you are involved in the development, marketing or distribution of ice cream, please plan to attend the Ice Cream Technology Conference March 31 to April 1 in St. Petersburg, FL. For more info, link HERE.
If you are involved in cottage cheese or other cultured dairy products, as well as fluid milk and milk beverages, you should plan to attend the Milk and Cultured Dairy Products Conference May 19 to 20 in Minneapolis. For more info, link HERE.
I emphasize cottage cheese, because this original high-protein cultured dairy product was featured in the March 2015 issue of Shape magazine. (Pictured to the right.)
That same issue featured an article about why dairy fats are good fats. (Scroll down to read the article.)
I recently wrote a column for Food Business News entitled “Scientifically based nutrition advice: Eat butter, meat and cheese.” It includes an interview with Nina Teicholz, author of the New York Times bestseller The Big Fat Surprise-Why Butter, Meat & Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet. You can read the column HERE.
Back to Expo West/Engredion. My Friday plans are to start in the early-morning hall (9:00am sharp at the Hilton) and walk up and down every aisle until I end the day at Engredion (Hall A).
Hope to see many of you there. Please shoot me an email HERE with your booth number and what time you will be there, and I will make an effort to visit. Think 9:00 Hilton, about 9:45 Arena, 10:30 Hall E (lower level), 11:15 Next Pavilion, noon Hall D, 1:00 Hall C, 2:00 Hall B, 3:00 (to the Marriott for State of the Industry symposium), 4:15 Hall A.
Aggressive schedule! I know, hence no blog. My apologies.
P.S. Don’t forget to move your clocks ahead Saturday night. Spring is almost here!
