CGMB in the News

– Rick to Serve as Speaker at Both CBD and Sports Nutrition Summits –

Rick Collins will once again be a presenter at SupplySide West – this year serving as a panelist on two separate educational tracks to address both sports nutrition and the latest information about cannabidiol (CBD) products and the law.  SupplySide West, being held at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas from October 15-19, is the world’s leading ingredient and solutions trade show – and is the largest gathering of health and nutrition industry professionals focused on dietary supplement, beverage, functional food, personal care, and sports nutrition innovation.

This year, Rick will be speaking at two separate educational tracks – presenting as part of both the CBD Summit and Sports Nutrition Summit – both taking place on Wednesday, October 16th.    As part of the CBD Summit, entitled “CBD From Seed to Shelf: The Supply Side Story”, Rick will be providing a look at CBD and related compounds derived from non-cannabis sources like orange peel, pine bark and black pepper and how they may factor into the dietary supplement, food and beverage markets given the regulatory compliance considerations in the complex area of CBD and the law.  As a speaker at the Sports Nutrition Summit, entitled “Finding New Pathways in Sports Nutrition”, Rick will provide insight into some of the key issues surrounding the introduction of CBD into the growing sports nutrition market and address the related legal and regulatory challenges of the sports nutrition industry now and in the near future. Among other topics, the workshop will explore issues related to ideation and innovation driving the sports nutrition market, including formulation considerations, product formats and market opportunities and whitespace identified in market research.  The workshop will also dive into the emerging ingredients that are fueling innovative product development – from CBD to fermented ingredients and unique anti-inflammatories.

Bringing together more than 17,000 health and nutrition industry experts, this year’s SupplySide West will feature more than 10,000 of the latest and most innovative ingredients and solutions in the market, with more than 1,300 exhibiting suppliers focusing on dietary supplements, food, beverage, personal care, sports nutrition and processing innovation.  This year’s in-depth education sessions offer more than 140 hours of education, covering a wide variety of topics for the health and nutrition industry – ranging from GMP Training to information on market trends, formulation considerations and regulatory changes in the industry.  Each year, the conference brings together decision makers and industry leaders from around the world to address some of the biggest issues in the dietary supplement and sports nutrition industries – and attracts health and nutrition professionals in the areas of dietary supplements, functional foods and beverages, sports nutrition and animal nutrition
