“We are very excited to have Dr. Phebus discuss important industry-related topics,” said Chuck Willoughby, FAPC manager of business and marketing relations. “We encourage food and agricultural industry leaders to attend the symposium to network with Dr. Phebus, as well as others in attendance.”
Student awards, sponsored by IFT-OK, will be presented in both the oral and poster presentation categories. First-, second- and third-place winners in both sections will receive $250, $150 and $75, respectively.
Following the awards, attendees also are invited to attend a reception with cake and punch to help FAPC celebrate its 20-year anniversary.
“Since its inception in 1997, FAPC’s research laboratories, pilot-processing facilities, educational programs and seminars have kept food and agricultural processors and entrepreneurs on the forefront of cutting-edge value-added processing and technology,” Willoughby said. “We are excited for what the next 20 years will bring.”
