FBEC: A Memorable Food and Beverage Conference

Last week Intelexians Steve Buffett and Bevin Lyon were in Cambridge, Maryland to celebrate the 43rd Annual Food and Beverage Environmental Conference (FBEC).

Food and beverage companies gathered to share industry knowledge on topics from wastewater treatment, presented by Intelex client Bimbo Bakeries, to air compliance strategies from Frito-Lay Inc.

The conference is a long standing tradition for many of the participating companies, even described by some attendees as a getaway or a retreat. Conference dress code is business casual, and it’s strictly enforced: as a first-time attendee Steve was warned not to wear a tie unless he wanted it snipped off his neck with a pair of scissors!

“This was my first conference like this!” was all Steve could say when asked about the experience. With events like clay shooting and an oyster hatchery tour, it’s no wonder that this conference stands out from many others Intelex attends. The picture definitely suggests they had a good time!
