BI Nutraceuticals will be sampling products made from a selection of the company’s most popular functional ingredient offerings at the 2013 Institute of Food Technology (IFT) Annual Meeting and Food Expo being held July 13 – 16 in Chicago. Individuals wishing to sample carrot juice with ginger and green tea, spicy gazpacho with Psyberloid - psyllium fiber which boosts fiber content and provides texture - or gather information about the company’s more than 200 GRAS ingredients for functional food and beverage applications are encouraged to visit BI’s booth #1056.
BI will also have Director of Marketing Randal Kreienbrink and Food Technologist Alison Raban on hand to meet attendees and discuss BI’s ingredient offerings and their applications. Both Raban and Kreienbrink recently received Certified Food Scientist (CFS) designation from IFT and will be recognized at the Opening General Session of the expo as members of the inaugural class of CFS recipients.
Additionally, the company recently received SQF 2000 (Safe Quality Food) certification for its East Coast facility located in Islandia, NY. The SQF program provides independent certification that BI’s food safety and quality management systems comply with international and domestic food safety regulations. Receiving this certification provides an additional level of assurance and commitment to BI’s customers that the company’s ingredients have been produced, processed, prepared and handled according to the highest possible quality standards across all levels of the supply chain. BI’s Long Beach, Calif. facility was SQF 2000 certified in 2011.
