Pittsburgh, PA — The Pittcon Organizing Committee has announced that Innovative Publishing, producer of Food Labs Conference and publisher of Food Safety Tech eJournal, has signed an agreement for the second year for the co-location of Food Labs Conference to be held in conjunction with Pittcon 2014. The partnership provides that the registration fee to attend the two-day Food Lab Conference, March 4-5. 2014, will also include unlimited week long admission to the Pittcon exposition floor and technical program.
The Food Labs Conference will take a more holistic approach to best practices in managing food testing and analyses needs as opposed to focusing on only one discipline such as microbiology or chemistry. An advisory committee comprised of industry, academia, technology suppliers and consultants has developed the conference curriculum which includes renowned speakers such as John Besser, Deputy Chief, Enteric Diseases Laboratory Branch, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Palmer A. Orlandi, Sr. Science Advisor Office of Foods and Veterinary Medicine, U.S. Food & Drug Administration.

Marian Nardozzi, Pittcon’s marketing specialist commented, “Pittcon continues to expand into food science and offers a significant amount of innovations and technical sessions relevant to methodologies used in this industry.
