PHOENIX, Ariz.—SupplySide West, the world’s largest expo gathering ingredient suppliers and finished product manufacturers is pleased to announce BASF Nutrition & Health as its exclusive 2014 educational sponsor. This marks BASF’s 12th year as the exclusive sponsor of SupplySide West’s education program.
“BASF Nutrition & Health continues to sponsor SupplySide West’s education program because we share a mutual interest in innovation and a healthier marketplace—and that begins with shared knowledge," said Ludger Eilers, director of human nutrition for BASF Nutrition & Health, North America.
The SupplySide West education program explores some of the most important topics affecting the dietary supplement, food and beverage marketplace. The education tracks are organized under VIRGO's industry-leading brands serving each of these markets: Natural Products INSIDER for dietary supplements, and Food Product Design for food and beverages.
