San Luis Obispo, CA. The program for the 15th Annual Dairy Ingredients Symposium (to be held February 21-22, 2012 at the Stanford Court Renaissance Hotel in San Francisco) will be sure to live up to its reputation as the premier meeting for users, suppliers and marketers of dairy ingredients in the United States. This year’s two-day program is organized into eight sessions from twelve university faculty researchers, and 8 dairy industry leaders. A special roundtable session will engage all attendees in a dialogue with key industry leaders. Other highlights anticipated at year’s meeting will be presentations on the latest insights on what could be in store for the dairy ingredients industry by 2020 and critical information on the recent new rules related to the Food Safety Modernization Act. In addition, sessions on new knowledge of dairy ingredients functional properties and dairy ingredients applications should not be missed by end-users, product developers and dairy ingredients manufacturers who want to insure the best product quality for food applications. A special session dedicated to fouling of heat exchangers and membranes used in dairy ingredients processing will leave you with new approaches to address a phenomenon which continues to reduce process efficiency and contribute to product quality issues. The program is full of new business insights, information that will enhance your ability to effectively use dairy ingredients, and technology that can improve dairy ingredients manufacturing processes," says Phil Tong, DPTC Director and program committee organizer. Receptions, breaks and lunches provide great networking opportunities for users, suppliers and researchers.
