Exhibitor Registration Information

2017 Philadelphia Section IFT Suppliers Expo

The Philadelphia Region boasts a very large food manufacturing community, one that serves customers locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.

Please join us as we showcase the newest food ingredients that that industry has to offer today. The Suppliers' Expo helps Philadelphia Section IFT provide scholarship money to selected Food Science students from local Universities within the Philadelphia Region.

With this year’s Clean Label theme we challenge each exhibitor to identify how your organization is meeting the clean label challenge. Attendees will vote on which suppliers best meet the following criteria:

  • Most creative booth display
  • Most interesting new product
  • Most informational clean label display
Plaques will be awarded to the winners!
