Well, we certainly know why Nashville, TN is known for live country music and hot friend chicken. But did you think it was known for hosting the “it” conference for registered dieticians who were the real rock stars at the Food and Nutrition Conference Expo. With over 9,000 people in attendance at the Music City Center, you’d think you were at a Blake Shelton concert! This conference had over 600 exhibitors, from a California fresh pavilion to a culinary demonstration theater as well as educational seminars that counted towards continuing education credits. Oh, and did we forget to mention all the delicious samples that are available to eat, plus a ton of great chances to win gifts like a free Fitbit?
The California Dried Plum Board was lucky enough to attend this year among so many other California products. We want to say thank you to those who were able to attend this year and stop by our booth. It was exciting to share our new recipes and talk about how California dried plums can help maintain healthy bones.
We look forward to seeing you next year in Boston and don’t forget #prunes4bones!
