New Plenary Session Announced for ABS 2016: Flask to Fork

The Algae Biomass Organization has announced the newest plenary session for the 2016 Algae Biomass Summit: Flask to Fork. The plenary session, which will take place on the second day of the conference, Monday, October 24th, will address algae-based foods and ingredients.

Global consumers are increasingly demanding healthier, more sustainable food options and leading algae innovators are stepping up to meet those demands with exciting new product offerings. In fact, algae can be found in products ranging from sausages to chocolate to energy bars to cooking oil. Will consumers embrace algae as the new ultra-sustainable superfood? The newly announced Flask to Fork session will delve into the latest market trends and algae product innovations, and will look ahead to opportunities and challenges in human health and nutrition.
