2018 FIEC Food + Beverage Environmental Conference

It’s that time again for the annual Food & Beverage Environmental Conference (FBEC) hosted by the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa in beautiful Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico on March 25-28, 2018. Our own Laura Huff, P.E. and Ron Pagel will be in attendance and excited to share their experiences in working with the F&B industry.

Organized by the Food Industry Environmental Council, the FBEC continues to be one of the premier environmental events for the food industry, bringing together senior environmental managers from F&B companies to share their experiences with sustainable practices, environmental compliance and new technologies and approaches.  The conference is open to those employed by a F&B processing company, F&B industry vendors and consultant partners and supporting trade associations. The conference is organized to foster information exchange and networking.
