The NEW Global Ingredients Summit combines two of our signature technical conferences - the Global Cheese Technology Forum and the Dairy Ingredients Technical Symposium - into one premier event. Now you can get the latest research and technology development information for cheese, milk, and whey ingredients all in one conference!

This two-day event will bring together industry and academia to serve as a launching point for future innovation in the dairy industry. Meet with your future innovators by attending student poster presentations and learn about dairy research presented by academics from across the globe. Afternoon concurrent sessions, with separate cheese and milk/whey ingredients tracks, will give you a chance to select your areas of interest and customize your Global Ingredients Summit experience.

Diverse topics will include new and emerging technologies in processing, ingredient customization, applications, health and wellness, sustainability, regulatory, and more. Come join us in Reno, Nevada in March 11-13, 2024 to network and learn!
