FNCE Recap 2019

Where can you go to hear the latest in nutrition research, sample the newest food products on the market, and even meet Bob of Bob’s Red Mill? The Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (FNCE)! Sponsored by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, FNCE is the world’s largest meeting of food and nutrition experts. This past October, thousands of Registered Dietitians, nutrition science researchers, policy makers, and industry leaders descended upon the convention center in Philadelphia, PA and CulinArt’s team of Registered Dietitians were right in the middle of it all! After three days of compelling lectures, tasty samples, and informative poster sessions, they are now filled with the latest in food trends, nutrition and sustainability research, and a larger network of nutrition and culinary professionals from which to draw inspiration and ideas.

Kaitlyn McGill, our NJ based RD, cites an “informing and inspiring seminar on Intuitive Eating” as a highlight of the Conference while Laura Martorano, MS, RD, CDN, RD at Stony Brook University, states “attending the seminars was the highlight of the trip.” Laura was able to expand her knowledge by attending seminars covering various topics that were useful to her role at Stony Brook University. Melissa Talley, RD at the George School in PA found several great snack options to recommend to the students including Chickpea Puffs, a healthier alternative to traditional cheese puffs. Many of the products featured had allergens and intolerances in mind; various snacks and bars were free from of the top 8 major food allergens and a variety of grain-free breads, muffins, and other baked goods dominated the expo floor. Minimalism was key as several one-ingredient products took center stage including lentil pasta and banana chips. Bob’s Red Mill, a company committed to offering pure, whole grain flours, baking mixes, and granolas displayed their large line of offerings; Bob himself was there to introduce new products and talk about the mission and beliefs of his company.

The Compass Group community had a strong presence at FNCE. It was wonderful to have our CulinArt RD team unite in person, rather than virtually. We spent time growing as a team and connecting on daily challenges and solutions from our own experiences. The CulinArt team was also able to meet many of our Envision Group and Compass RD colleagues. It was nice to be able to network and learn from other Compass RD’s experiences in the field.

What our clients are saying

“We appreciate the excellent service that is a hallmark of the Chadwick Culinart team. You all are such professionals - and you always deliver your service in such a pleasant manner! Thank you for everything you do to help make the Village events successful. We greatly appreciate your talents, efforts, and kindness.”

“The CulinArt team has been great to work with and has been super flexible. Having worked with other dining services at different institutions, having a dining team that is open to menu changes has been a great resource for our events. ”

“I hope you do the food service in heaven.”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“The dinner I had tonight at Forman was not only the best meal I have had at Forman in the entire time I have been here, it was the best meal I can remember having anywhere in a long time. [It] was a restaurant quality meal, and it added to the enjoyment that the two young ladies serving me could not have been more charming. What an energizing way to finish a weekend eating a dinner like that.”

“Just want to take a moment to thank you for running such a great kitchen. It’s been a huge benefit to have such a delicious and various assortment of foods to choose from, all without having to leave the building. I’m always amazed at the daily variety and the quality of food that is offered. The cafeteria has made my food choices as easy as can be.”

“I just wanted to send a quick note acknowledging the wonderful food and service provided by our new vendor.  The food was delicious and the students consistently commented on how amazing everything was.  What a difference! In addition, the staff and management were so easy to deal with – very professional.  They were punctual, responsive and attentive to our needs.  Thank you again for making a positive change to the quality of life of our students.”

“Even though we see challenges every day, each one of you rises to the occasion and makes it seem so easy. I cannot express how impressive it is to see you all work in such a fashion. You are true professionals.”

“What a night! You and your team rocked it and made us look like stars. Great working with you and know we will have more chances to work together on future events.”
