Burdock Group Consultants Exhibit at IFT Annual Meeting + Food Expo 2014

The Burdock Group Consultants completed another very successful showcase at the Institute of Food Technologist’s (IFT) Annual Meeting+Food Expo 2014 in New Orleans. Before the conference even began, George A. Burdock, Ph.D. (President of Burdock Group) spoke at the Pre-Conference Symposium on Regulatory Requirements in Sports Nutrition and Muscle Building Supplements at the Hilton Riverside. Highlights of the talk included guidance on claim substantiations, past histories of regulatory pitfalls, and speculation on future regulation in the supplement industry. Afterwards, the Burdock Group team attended IFT’s annual award ceremony and celebrated the 75th anniversary of the convention.

The next morning the trade show floor opened, and it smelled great; food and beverage manufacturers from around the world showed off the latest innovations in food science and technology. New products ranged from all natural food color additives (shown off in the form of gummies) to soy oil and many more revolutionary ingredient concoctions, to which many Burdock Group had contributed safety and regulatory advice. The Burdock team talked with many other food science innovators at our trade show booth and met with future clients.
