The 2nd annual Clean Label Conference, held in 2015, drew 218 registrants, a 14% increase over the previous event in 2013. As with all Global Food Forums’ events, general session speakers are not affiliated with ingredient vendors to help assure impartial, non-commercial presentations.

However, the conference offers 18 Technology Snapshots. These 15 minute, concise presentations, chosen by a jury panel, provide information on the properties and characteristics of new commercially available ingredients.
