(Washington, D.C. - June 8, 2011)
The International Dairy Show will feature several pavilions to provide the dairy industry with the latest research and information on food additives and enhancements, food safety and traceability, and processing and packaging. The International Dairy Show will take place September 19-21, 2011, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

"There will be live demonstrations and products to sample, along with educational sessions," said Robin Cornelison, IDFA trade show director. "With the growing demand for new flavors, changing food safety regulations and new packaging innovations entering the market daily, attendees will have the opportunity to be hands-on and find exactly what they need."

The International Dairy Show, presented by the International Dairy Foods Association, will feature the newest innovations in technology, packaging, ingredients and services for the dairy foods industry. Educational sessions will offer solutions that span the entire manufacturing process, and attendees will have the opportunity to visit exhibits displaying everything dairy companies need to run more efficiently, create new products and improve profitability.

Ingredients, Flavorings and Seasonings Pavilion
Ingredients, flavorings and seasonings have become the driving forces of the dairy foods industry. Whether used for processed foods or beverages, ingredients have taken center stage and are used to enhance taste, texture and color. This pavilion will provide a centralized hot-spot where attendees can explore flavors and ingredients that offer new tastes as well as enhance existing products. Presentations and cooking demonstrations will highlight global flavors and changing consumer tastes and preferences.

Food Safety Pavilion
Recent food-safety legislation has created more opportunity for food-safety innovations in dairy foods processing, transportation, worker cleanliness, equipment and factory sanitation. This pavilion will provide a concentrated area on the exhibit show floor, complete with tailored educational sessions, for attendees seeking information on the latest products and processes in sanitation and food safety.

Innovations Showcase Pavilion
Thousands of buyers attend the International Dairy Show to see firsthand the latest innovations in dairy foods and beverage processing. The Innovations Showcase Pavilion will provide a convenient and successful way for both buyers and suppliers to conduct business - bringing everyone together in one place at the same time. The Innovations Showcase will be the place to find the latest in processing techniques or machinery, innovative packaging, advances in distribution, facility innovation and more.
