The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) today announced that it has received additional commitments from six more of the nation’s top university food science programs to participate in the educational program of PROCESS EXPO 2015, bringing this to a total of twelve schools to date. These latest schools include Kansas State University, Purdue University, Rutgers University, Texas A&M, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and the University of Tennessee. Professors from these distinguished universities will join the 2015 program that already includes speakers from the Illinois Institute of Technology, Iowa State University, Michigan State University, Ohio State University, UC Davis, and University of Wisconsin. These speakers will address critical topics in the food and beverage industry including food safety and sanitation, innovative technologies in food processing, the latest developments in food packaging, and will cover all major industry segments.

The PROCESS EXPO UNIVERSITY educational program will include over 35 hours of sessions that take place throughout the show during PROCESS EXPO 2015 at Chicago's McCormick Place from September 15-18, 2015 and admission to all sessions is free of charge to all registered attendees.

“PROCESS EXPO UNIVERSITY is truly turning into a major draw for the trade show as we are already fielding inquiries about next year’s program,” said Gil Williams, Chairman of the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) and President of Poly-clip System USA. “In fact, some of our attendees from the 2013 program came from other universities that are now reaching out to participate as speakers themselves for the 2015 program. We are already excited as we work on finalizing the topics this Fall and we are confident that our audience will enjoy the results next September.”

“Our educational program is the perfect complement to the expertise found on the PROCESS EXPO show floor among the 500+ exhibitors who will be demonstrating the latest innovations in food processing and packaging technology,” said FPSA President and CEO David Seckman. “Between the top-notch sessions going on throughout the day and the many exhibitors to explore and visit, attendees need to plan on spending multiple days at PROCESS EXPO.”

PROCESS EXPO 2015 is co-located with the International Dairy Show and InterBev Process. Registration for the four day event will open in early 2015 and details of the full educational program will be released at that time.
