CBD, THC, Hemp. Cannabis-derived ingredients are quickly being adapted for the consumer packaged food space, specifically within food and beverage. We’ll talk about it and how it impacts your business at both BevNET Live and the Cannabis Forum next week in New York City.
Looking to add CBD to your beverage? Is it right for your product, and do your consumers care? The best way to explore the space: a first-hand account of someone that has taken the leap and a data wizard who knows everything about the cannabis market numbers and where they’re headed.
John Simmons, the Co-Founder of Weller, is a beverage veteran who launched his company with a line of hemp-infused snacks, then entered the beverage space earlier this year with the launch of its flavored zero-calorie sparkling waters infused with 25 mg of full spectrum CBD. On day 1 of BevNET Live Simmons will provide a report from the front lines as he and his company navigate the evolving industry.
Building upon Simmons’ look at the past and present, Jessica Lukas, the VP of Consumer Insights at BDS Analytics, Inc. will bring the conversation to the future on day 2 of BevNET Live. Lukas will pull from leading market research and consumer insights to provide projections of what the next five years looks like for beverages infused with cannabis.
For those who want a deeper dive, stay an extra day. The day after BevNET Live, on Friday June 14th, the Cannabis Forum for Food and Beverage presented by BevNET and NOSH provides a full-day of cannabis content from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM at CNVS Midtown NYC.
The Cannabis Forum Summer 2019 agenda features industry trailblazers from Kiva Confections, CAN CAN Cleanse, Cannabiniers, 99th Floor and New Frontier Data who will explore growth strategies, best practices, brand case studies and more. Plenty of time will be left to network, ask questions, and build partnerships in this rapidly evolving industry.
