The WFFC UK recently celebrated its 1st anniversary with a boat party on the River Thames in London. This UK branch of the US-based Women in Flavor and Fragrance Commerce was spearheaded by Angie Flay who observed the rising number of women involved in the flavor and fragrance industry in the United Kingdom.
The WFFC hosted its first “Night at the Races” at the Meadowlands Racetrack (Rutherford, NJ) on August 2. Despite the heat, 59 industry members joined the WFFC for a relaxing outdoor home-style barbecue dinner at Paddock Park, situated right on the homestretch of the track. As the afternoon wore into evening, the weather cooled, the trotters were cheered on by an enthusiastic crowd, and bets were won and lost. The program committee chair, having won big, is considering a repeat of this event next year.
