The 28th International Sweetener Symposium, hosted by the American Sugar Alliance, has been scheduled for July 29 to August 3, 2011, at the Stowe Mountain Lodge in Stowe, Vt. Event information is on ASA’s website — www.sugaralliance.org.
Traditionally, about 400 people attend the symposium to hear about timely, significant issues affecting the sweetener industry and to interact with industry colleagues. This year’s event will include a look ahead to the next farm bill, as well as discussion of the U.S. and world market supply-demand outlook and the effects of multinational, regional and bilateral trade agreements on world sugar policies and U.S. commodity programs.
Stowe is in north central Vermont, about 45 minutes from Burlington.
