It’s not always about homeruns. Sometimes just getting on base is what counts.

As long as you know how to get those players home!

  • Hame Persaud, Executive Vice President, HP Ingredients

This session shares best practices for making terms like “real science” and “research proven” meaningful, accessible and cost-effective. Learn how understanding and communicating the science of your ingredients and brands helps build trust, creates unique communication opportunities, and serves up claim substantiation. Be victorious in your research platform!

Don’t get stuck in the dugout.
