IDFA is inviting attendees of the upcoming Milk and Cultured Dairy Products Conference to submit new products for its annual innovative products contest. The conference, scheduled for May 19-20 in Minneapolis, will explore what’s new in dairy ingredients, processing technology and packaging.
“This competition for new products and prototype flavors provides great insight into the creative approach that milk and cultured dairy companies and flavoring suppliers are using to create new flavors and products,” said John Allan, IDFA vice president of regulatory affairs and international standards.
During the Innovative Milk and Cultured Dairy Products Contest, attendees will sample the latest products and vote for their favorites. Awards will be given for the most innovative milk or cultured dairy product and for the most innovative milk or cultured dairy prototype product.
