On the Road

Alex Nikolai, Project Coordinator for the DDC, traveled to Chicago, Illinois, to attend the IFT18 – A Matter of Science + Food. 

"Justin Farmer and I met with several companies looking to expand their presence. A few of them were international companies wanting to establish a presence in the United States for the first time," Nikolai said.
