The 73rd edition of the School Nutrition Association’s Annual National Conference is underway in St Louis.
Several of the country’s biggest foodservice equipment manufacturers are exhibiting at the event including Ali Group brands ACP Inc., Champions Industries, CMA Dishmachines , Edlund and Metro Foodservice.
Other manufacturers present include: Globe Food Equipment, which will be showcasing a range of mixers, slicers and blenders; Cadco which is introducing its new multi-level grab and go warming shelves; Food Warming Equipment Company, which will be presenting a host of products including its Moisture Temp Retherm Oven and humidified pizza folding cabinets; and Cambro, which will be featuring a range of products to support what it believes to be the most popular trends in school foodservice right now: Breakfast in the Classroom and Grab-N-Go.
The theme for the conference is “Meet me in St Louis” which the organisers say “not only emphasizes the importance of relationships and networking that is an ANC hallmark, it also provides a compelling call to action, as you invite school nutrition professionals to ‘meet you’ at your booth in the Exhibit Hall.”
The conference also includes a series of keynote speakers and discussions, and will see the announcement of several newly elected members to the SNA’s board of directors.
The School Nutrition Association (formerly American School Food Service Association) is a national, nonprofit professional organization representing more than 58,000 members who provide high-quality, low-cost meals to students across the country.
The Annual National Conference began on 14th July and will run until 16th July.
