Whole Grains Council Conference Banner


UPDATE: Given the growing travel concerns around coronavirus, we have decided to postpone the upcoming Oldways Whole Grains Council conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Look for announcements about the conference in the future.


I was impressed by the number of thoughtful and in-depth presentations throughout the conference. Almost every single talk I attended was well prepared and highly informative, laying out important issues for the foodservice industry, but equally interesting for anyone wanting to learn more.

– S.G., journalist

All of the speakers were excellent and very applicable to foodservice specifically. The demos were a good addition too, and helped keep things interesting and were helpful when thinking about prep ideas for foodservice operators. – T.S., manufacturer/sponsor

What I liked best was the variety of speakers that created a well-rounded exploration of the topic. I also liked being able to connect with the sponsors at the tables and tasting all the grains in the conference meals.

 – K.N., speaker

I liked that it was a different kind of conference. There was a lot of interesting information and I brought back several ideas and hopefully ways to incorporate different grains, but also ways to market to people so that they will try it.

 – B.P., foodservice dietitian
