Next up in North America: Nutracon & Supply Expo: Health & Nutrition Product Development from Start to Finish (March 22-26, 2006)

(Boulder, CO, December 8, 2005) For ingredient and technology companies and manufacturers, North America’s leading education and trade show event is coming up quickly. Located in the Anaheim, California Convention Center, beginning March 22, Supply Expo and Nutracon foster the development of real-world product applications with a conference and tradeshow that highlights cutting edge science, novel applications, leading companies and innovations and creates networking and business information exchange across the full value chain of the industry.

Co-located with Natural Products Expo West, the world’s largest trade show for healthy, natural and organic products, these three events are a must attend for domestic and global ingredient/technology suppliers and top-quality manufacturing companies in the healthy foods/beverages, supplements and functional cosmetics industries.

Nutracon 2006, the premier education and networking event for senior executives features two comprehensive concurrent tracks so attendees can hone in on growth categories, market drivers and case studies most pertinent to their business. The Food/Beverage Track features new and developing trends in low-glycemic, allergen-free, kids products and beauty foods. The Dietary Supplements/Bioactives Track features the latest science in new ingredients, sports nutrition, weight loss, botanicals, nanotechnology and functional cosmetics. Both tracks feature outstanding speakers such as Bruce Ames, PhD.

SupplyExpo 2006 promises a robust trade show floor featuring leading food/beverage, supplement and health and beauty ingredient and technology suppliers. Expecting more than the 8,000 manufacturing buyers and executives who attended in 2005, Supply Expo will once again offer a competitive advantage for exhibitors.

“SupplyExpo West 2005 was by far the best show for its industry. The level of audience was exactly our target. Our booth had consistent traffic from the opening on Friday till the closing on Sunday. Our problems at the show were luxury problems—having to print more literature each night for the following day.”
—Susan Crowley, DMV International

“Combined with SupplyExpo/ExpoWest, Nutracon is a must-attend event each year.”
-Steve Snyder, Vice President-Sales and Marketing, Cargill Health and Food Technologies

“I had been searching for a light all natural sweetener for over a decade, but my R&D people told me it was impossible. SupplyExpo provided me with the product development key to the 100-calorie all natural smoothies that have led to one of Stonyfield’s most successful products."

Gary Hirshberg, President & CE-Yo, Stonyfield Farms, Inc.

With a free education program designed to assist product development decision makers and ingredient buyers to stay on top of key market developments, the 2006 trade show floor also offers special features to give attendees a number of unique opportunities to see innovation in action.

  • The Applications Center demonstrates how to increase advantage based on the application of science and technology. Taste masking, solubility, payload, food incorporation and more will be on display.
  • Scientific Poster Sessions profile new industry-relevant applications of science and technical advancements.
  • The New Ingredient & Technology Showcase provides reviews of new ingredient and technology information including potential applications, science and specifications.

New in 2006, in a joint venture between SupplyExpo and NPIcenter, is the Business Information & Technology Exchange Center, a show floor hub for discussion of ideas and opportunities from academia, government and industry. The program will include presentations of novel concepts, licensing and alliance opportunities as well as interest criteria presented by industry experts.

Nutracon and SupplyExpo, co-located with ExpoWest offer the best opportunity of the year to experience the whole industry under one roof and health and nutrition product development from start to finish.
