snack food industry. This year's QIM, held September 8-12 at The Blackwell Inn & Conference
Center and The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH, saw record attendance with quality,

QIM combines classroom lectures from leading
industry experts and innovators with practical
lab work in FIC's pilot plant. Featured this year
was a guided tour of Jones Potato Chip Co.'s
