SCAN is an invaluable ally in helping to communicate the health profile of real food and share recipes and utilization tips with dietitians, members of the media and consumers. We have benefited greatly from our relationship with SCAN. Participation in the SCAN spring symposium provides a great opportunity to interact with dietary experts and thought leaders.”  - International Olive Council & The National Onion Association, November 2012

“CanolaInfo prioritizes sponsoring SCAN’s annual meeting because it is well attended and well run. It features top shelf speakers and cutting edge researchers, some of whom we have the opportunity to sponsor. SCAN organizers always ensure that sponsorships are a win-win for their members and sponsors in terms of relevancy and uniqueness. Their professionalism and responsiveness are second to none. We would absolutely recommend SCAN to other potential sponsors.”  - CanolaInfo, November 2012

"Over the past five years, SCAN has worked with us to develop new and innovative platforms and resources that enable us to reach their membership.  Their collaborative attitude and results-driven mindset allows us to take part in programs that are of value to their members and provide a high ROI for our brands."  - Craig Blakaitis, VP Pollock Communications, November 2012
