On March 19, innovation went international. 

The delegation from New Frontiers in Food for our International Forum focused on new food technologies was a hit with our members! Their products and services ranged from Viking-inspired craft beer to nutritionally-dense buffalo beetles, sweetener from miracle berries to supplements from mushrooms, plus printed nutrients, dynamic packaging, and more. Attendees had the opportunity to hear from all 14 companies in a rapid fire one-minute introduction format.

Also speaking was a panel of leaders representing the three of the five food cluster organizations that comprise New Frontiers in Food (each similar to FaB), based in Spain (Clusaga), the Netherlands (Food Valley), France (Valorial and Vitagora), and Belgium (Wagralim).
