Health and Safety

FIRST sight. FIRST impression. FIRST spark.

That moment you hear an insight or see a new ingredient that sparks a whole new product idea. Or when you hear groundbreaking research that inspires you to re-envision the way you sustainably package food. Or when you meet someone who will change the way you see your work forever.

These moments are what FIRST is all about.

FIRST, is the only place you can get what you need to advance your knowledge, network, business, and push the future of food forward. Because when we all work together as one, we bring the world better food.

FIRST—food improved by research, science, and technology.

Mark your 2022 calendars! FIRST returns July 10-13 with a brand-new hybrid experience. Plus, the largest business-to-business food expo will be back - live and in-person from Chicago. Be sure to check back for more updates. We'll see you in 2022!
