    ALISON BORGMEYER, MS, RD

    Edelman

    Alison brings nearly 25 years of experience across the food, beverage, commodity, ingredient, Agribusiness and restaurant/QSR sectors. Alison is a unique hybrid with an earned lens first and foremost, but with scientific creds having become a registered dietitian later in her career.  In her time at Edelman, she’s operationalized the firm’s Food & Beverage offering while launching Edelman’s first test kitchen in Chicago. Alison brings an encyclopedia-like brain for all things food and beverage from soil health, crop science, animal and land stewardship to how foods and beverages end up on our plates.


    KEITH NUNES

    Editor

    Food Business News at Sosland Publishing

    Keith spent the past 30 years writing about the production, formulation, processing and consumption of food and beverage products. His experience has introduced him to the leaders of the industry's largest companies and the entrepreneurs who are driving change throughout the supply chain. Keith’s work rejects the myths and hype around food and clearly gets to the heart of the complex process of transporting raw materials from the field, turning them into finished products and delivering them to the consumer's table in a safe and efficient manner. As the Editor of Food Business News, he has led the editorial department from a start-up in 2005 to the leading news source in the industry on the web and in print.
