Products and Packaging: What’s Now. What’s New. What’s Next.
MBC Consulting held its first ever CPG Conference in Washington DC March 11-13. The Conference was organized around a joint meeting of the Research & Development and Quality/Regulatory Management Share Groups (both managed and facilitated by Jim Wisner). With many members participating via remote web conference due to new travel restrictions beginning that week, the conference was nonetheless a great success in spite of the challenges. The top flight speaker list included Doug Baker – VP of Industry Relation at FMI (and coordinating the industry Covid 19 response), Maria Velissariou – Chief Science and Technology Officer of the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), Eric Winborn – well known Washington Consultant, Kantha Shelke – nationally recognized food scientist, Randy Briesath CEO of Seismic Solutions, Danny Beard of Packaging Specialists, Jim Wisner and others.
