Dishes for demo and tasting include Vegan Black Forest Blend™ Bolognese capitalizing on consumer interest in pulses. Thursday tastings will include several varieties from InHarvest’s new Fruit & Grain Shakes Series; Friday tastings will feature parfaits layering fresh fruit and yogurt with InHarvest’s puffed brown and wild rices and Sunrise Blend with Quinoa Flakes®.

WHEN: Thursday, July 12, 11:15 am–3:15 pm, and Friday, July 13, 9:15 am–12:15 pm, during the annual conference of the National Association of College & University Food Services (NACUFS).
