« NutrEvent is an ideal mix of scientific presentation, innovation perspectives and regulatory updates, with great opportunities to meet potential new partners through one to one meetings. It fits completely in the concept of "Open innovation", applied to modern nutrition.”

“Nutrevent is the place to be for any body within the food industry who cares and deals with innovations: academia, food scientists, food technologists, service providers, marketeers, regulatory & legal specialists, business consultants.”
Douwina BOSSCHER, Cargill, Leader Nutrition Sciences, Global Food Research :
"The [conference] program looks interesting. I like the idea of following the R&D innovation pipeline from ingredient screening to product applications. Also, the parallel session on Regulations and Marketing is a nice fit.”
Benoit LAPLAIZE, Lesaffre Human Care, Sales and Marketing Director:
“Academia has probably more place than in any “commercial” show.”
Nico Van Belzen, Executive Director of ILSI Europe
“NutrEvent provides an important forum to discuss in an integrated way both science, innovation and marketing(…) I think the 2011 edition will serve to establish a tradition of NutrEvent meetings.”<//em></><//>
Kees DE GOOIJER, Food & Nutrition Delta, General Director
“We have to be aware that it is useless to discuss regional or even national progress. So a conference in a North-Western European setting is just what we need, to join forces and build the networks which will have a major impact.”
Erwin LAMOT, Flanders’ Food, General Director:
“NutrEvent 2011? Networking at an international level!”
