SHIFT | IFT 2020 Virtual Food Expo & Event

Posted on Jul 06, 2020

Every year, the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) celebrates food, flavors, and the science behind it all at their SHIFT event. This annual expo brings together innovators and leaders across the food production industry to share expertise, ideas, and new public safety updates and standards. 

As a company that specializes in custom blends, seasonings, and marinades, our goal is to create food that is memorable, SQF-certified, unifying, and unique. Attending SHIFT is a priority for us that can be passed on to you.

Due to COVID-19 and CDC social distancing guidelines, Carolina Ingredients, in partnership with their parent company Mitsubishi International Food Ingredients, will be participating in SHIFT's 2020 virtual expo with our own virtual booth.

In 2020, Carolina Ingredient's has not only continued to create one-of-a-kind seasonings in our Research & Development facility, but we have also put your health and safety at the forefront.

Some of our top-selling products fall under the following categories:

 

Don't forget to visit our virtual booth at SHIFT from July 13-15!

From classic snack seasonings to custom creations, we're ready to create with you. Contact us to learn more about how we can help build your newest signature seasoning or spice.
