RTI Innovation Advisors will participate in the Institute of Food Technologists' Annual Event and Food Expo, one of the largest events of its kind bringing together science of food professionals worldwide. The event attracts attendees from all segments of the food science profession—research and design, ingredients, safety and quality, technology, equipment, processing, packaging, manufacturing, suppliers and buyers, policy makers, and academics—and offers them the opportunity to transform collective knowledge into innovative solutions to help advance our planet’s food safety, nutrition, and sustainability.

Our presenters: 

Connect with Lawrence Blume, Ph.D, who presents RTI's technology and social science research on cannabis, and participates in a panel discussion on Legalized Cannabis and Hemp Edibles – the Food Science Challenge, and in a round table on the same topic. He speaks on July 15 from 2-4 pm CDT and again July 17, 11 a.m.-12 p.m. CDT.
