Innovative Foods and Ingredients

Minneapolis, MN, USA
June 23, 2019 – June 27, 2019

The expanding use of advanced preparatory methods and distinct genomic compositions in food is rapidly creating a new age of consumer choices. Simultaneously, these innovative food and ingredient choices are dramatically altering the decisions being made by stakeholders throughout the food supply system, domestically and internationally. Scientific, farming, processing, manufacturing, marketing, and retail distribution communities focused on providing commercially viable products are directly affected, as are government regulators overseeing the safety of the food system and public advocates committed to accurately informing consumers.

Dr. Morven McLean, ILSI Research Foundation Executive Director, will be participating in the Innovative Foods and Ingredients (IFI) conference series, organized and convened by the Institute on Science for Global Policy (ISGP), with support from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Part of the ISGP Food Innovation Program, the IFI conference series seeks to identify the opportunities, challenges, and priorities recognized by major scientific, technological, private sector, governmental, and public advocacy stakeholders involved in the emergence of innovative foods and ingredients.

To promote the candid exchange of ideas and clarity of priorities, the initial, invitation-only IFI conference is convened in a not-for-attribution environment defined by the Chatham House Rule. More information is available from ISGP
