SNIC 2016: Discover Your Master Plan for School Nutrition Success!


Looking for a high-level meeting experience with collaborative activities that challenge you? If so, then SNA’s School Nutrition Industry Conference (SNIC), January 17-19, 2016, in San Diego, is the place for you. You can expect three days of learning dedicated to the cooperation between school nutrition operators and their industry partners to create a healthy and positive environment for the students they serve year-round.

The theme Building Practical Solutions for School Nutrition will focus on addressing challenges and finding solutions for K-12 foodservice professionals with a major emphasis on looking to the future of the business of school nutrition. SNIC 2016 will provide you with the “blueprints” you need to design and build a successful school nutrition program and enhance your current business practices.

SNIC’s opening keynote speaker, Futurist Christian Crews, will discuss the hottest trends in business and society at large and how these trends will impact both operators and industry. He will also focus on identifying solutions to address the current challenges in school foodservice and help you map out the future of your business. This interactive session will address some of the most compelling topics in school nutrition, including:

  • Dealing with realistic and unrealistic demands of parents
