Justin Kanthak wears several hats, notably as the head of the snack segment for Griffith Foods and as the president of the professional trade organization, the Research Chefs Association. In March 2020, the US food industry was tremendously impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, starting with the cancellation of international and trade conferences, and the RCA annual conference was forced to cancel the in-person gathering. The weight of understanding what could be done instead weighed on the RCA board leadership, and Justin joined the podcast to share his thoughts about how the industry will change and what we can do as product development professionals.
The Research Chefs Association conference is currently on-going as RCA PoweredUp. It is open to members and non-members alike. Get more information at their conference home page: poweredup.culinology.org
