2020 WHOLE GRAINS CONFERENCE
September 14 & 15 (Monday and Tuesday)
Sheraton Grand Rio Hotel & Resort, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Learn about whole grains in the beautiful, sunny city of Rio de Janeiro, and experience the rapidly growing whole grain market ﬁrsthand. In line with the style of previous Oldways Whole Grains Council conferences, sessions will include research updates on whole grain nutrition, food and wellness trends, whole grain culinary innovations and recipes, marketing strategies, and proven approaches for getting more people to enjoy more whole grains. Additionally, this conference will provide an update on whole grain regulation throughout the Americas, as Brazil is one of several Latin American countries currently revisiting whole grain regulation and labeling.
Latin America is the birthplace of many of the “ancient grains” that are popular today, such as quinoa and amaranth. Take this opportunity to learn about new whole grain trends that are developing, to bring home creative recipe ideas, and to exchange strategies for expanding into the growing whole grain market. And to make things even easier, note that visa-free entry to Brazil is available to citizens of the United States, Canada, Australia and Japan, eﬀective June 17, 2019.
