When it comes to seafood species identification, DNA analysis is at a crossroads. There's a pressing need to move beyond playing “gotcha” with restaurateurs and retailers and toward mainstream use of DNA analysis. With more seafood suppliers, retailers and restaurants employing this technology to ensure they are getting what they pay for, but its use is not qualifying as mainstream…is it time that it did?
Presented by Edward Diehl, Director of Business Development of ACGT Inc., William Gergits, Managing Member of Therion International, and LeeAnn Applewhite, CEO of Applied Food Technologies, DNA specialists, this webinar will give you insight into:
-- The latest advancements in DNA testing
-- The costs associated with DNA analysis, specifically is it becoming more affordable?
-- What's preventing seafood suppliers, restaurateurs and retailers from seeking their services?
-- The prevalence of fraud in the global seafood trade, whether it's increasing, decreasing or the same?
-- The importance of weeding out fraud and the damage that can be done by selling mislabeled product?
Moderated by Steve Hedlund, Editor of SeafoodSource.com, there will be three 10-minute PowerPoint presentations followed by Q&A. Please set aside 90 minutes for the webinar.
