Recent delegate testimonials from last year’s Science & Innovation Day:

Presentations well presented, with valuable and informative information

Really useful insights - had me thinking from a different perspective

Great opportunity to meet experts and ask advice on specific topics. The sugar reduction and effects on texture was key. The discussion around natural sweeteners was also very good even though stevia is the only one on the market at the moment, monk fruit is one to keep an eye on. Future trends were very relevant and informative
