Behind news releases on how berries improve heart health, memory and skin health is the work of research scientists. The Berry Health Benefits Symposium is an international conference dedicated to showcasing the latest scientific research by these men and women into berries and health.

The symposium, which has been held biennially since 2005, features cutting edge findings in many areas including cognition, berry phytochemicals and metabolites on cardiovascular function & cardio-metabolic health, gut health & gut microflora, food technology & chemistry and berry special topics.

Put on under the auspices of the National Berry Crops Initiative, the Berry Health Benefit Symposium also offers a 1/2 day chartered bus tour to discover Florida berry farms, the University of Florida Gulf Coast Research and Education Center Balm Campus and finishes with a Cowboy BBQ at the Southern Grace Ranch.
