News and Notes from the IFT Annual Meeting + Food Expo

Patrick Donnelly, AOCS Chief Executive Officer, is currently attending the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Annual Meeting + Food Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada.

He was thrilled to report that yesterday, during the opening session, Casimir Akoh, Distinguished Professor , University of Georgia and AOCS past president 2008-2009, was awarded the Nicholas Appert Award, IFT’s highest honor recognizing preeminence in and contributions to the field of food technology. 

At the 2012 AOCS Annual Meeting & Expo, Dr. Akoh received the Supelco/Nicholas Pelick- AOCS Research Award for outstanding original research. 

Dr. Akoh recently published the paper “Production of Human Milk Fat Analogue Containing Docosahexaenoic and Arachidonic Acids “ in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry (abstract here). Congratulations Cas and thank you for the great work!

Pat also tipped us to the IFT ‘Food Geek’ YouTube channel.

My favorite: ‘IFT Geeks in History’

We hope everyone is enjoying IFT this year!
