USA Rice Round Table Discussion

Event Details
Tuesday, December 11, 2018 - 11:00am to 12:00pm
555 12th Street NW, Washington, DC 20004

Please join USA Rice for a round table discussion on the latest developments in fortified rice. The session is a follow on to a previous event held two years ago to introduce fortified rice to the PVO community and discuss some of the technical nutrition aspects. 

Over the last two years there have been numerous updates and developments, including a new Commodity Requirements Document (CRD) that adds the rinse resistant coated technology option for fortification, in addition to extrusion, which had already been approved. The round table will discuss the logistics and technical aspects of the new CRD and the different technologies, look at quality improvements, and discuss next steps on fortified rice.  

The USA Rice meeting will be held on the concourse level in room C7 from 11:00 AM-12:00 PM.

Please note that this event occurs right before the FACG Winter Meeting from 1:00-4:30 PM, also at the same address.

Additional details and the agenda will be forthcoming.
