    This event will be the first joint collaborative with all three of North America’s major CPG trade associations participating to gain industry alignment and advance a framework that promotes science-based fortification practices that can be used in all three countries. Participants will have a voice at the table in shaping a North American food fortification framework. This event will feature government representatives from the US, Canada and Mexico. In addition, the forum will address population differences in the North American region and the scientific evidence for fortification. This is an excellent opportunity to become familiar with the regulatory and business environment of each respective country.
