Nutrition, Health and Regulatory 

With an active food, nutrition, and health landscape it is important to understand nutrition opportunities, science and regulatory trends, and this underscores the importance for innovators, researchers, scientists, and regulatory professionals to work closely in partnership. 

The need to know goes beyond your company’s regulatory affairs department. Product developers, food marketers, and food safety specialists can leverage their regulatory knowledge for successful food product innovation, formulation and market entry.
