CRN-I Announces 2016 Symposium
in Conjunction With December Codex Meeting in Hamburg

Manno, Switzerland, 16 August 2016The Council for Responsible Nutrition-International (CRN-I), the international arm of the U.S.-based Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), today announced its seventh annual scientific symposium, “Optimal Nutrition and the Ever-Changing Dietary Landscape,” will be held Friday, 2 December, at Le Meridien Hotel, Hamburg, Germany, just prior to the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU) meeting.  

“We invite Codex attendees to join us for a complimentary full day of cutting-edge and thought-provoking presentations by scientific experts from Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the U.S.,” said Jim Griffiths, Ph.D., CRN-I vice-president, scientific & regulatory affairs. “This annual meeting has gained a strong reputation among the global scientific and regulatory communities as a science-based symposium delving into the latest research on current nutrition topics.”

Subjects to be covered include: healthy aging and optimum health; bringing the “big data” component into the wellness discussion; social and economic considerations of the “overfed and undernourished” population; the role of food supplements in the dietary landscape; and much more.

Registration is complimentary to all Codex official country delegations and available for a small fee for industry executives. See the CRN-I website for registration and further agenda details:
