Thank you to everyone who attended the 12th Annual American Food Innovate Summit in Chicago!
The summit welcomed over 140 food innovators, experts and professionals discussing the newest innovations, technologies and developments in the industry.
30+ senior innovators, developers, food scientists, marketers and researchers provided ground-breaking case studies exploring how to help you improve your product launch success rate.
I’ve attended many scientific conferences but this was by far the best. All the topics and speakers were high quality and I learned something from them. There was a wide range from start-ups to large industry speakers with different backgrounds, so it was nice to here all inputs on innovation.

The American Food Innovate Summit was a great conference to meet, hear and see the people behind the scenes of all the brands we have come to love and engage with. Understanding how they take advantage of opportunities and/or overcome challenges provided our team with great insights. We take these experiences and hope to apply them to help small brands like BOU continue to grow
- Co-Founder & President, BOU
The American Food Sure and American Food Innovate are well-organized events with high-quality speakers who are able to share real-life case studies on best go-to-market strategies to win at retail, i would recommend taking part to see the latest developments.
