Course Description
Savage will be hosting an educational course in our recently built demonstration room. Industry expert Kristi Sufferling will lead a 3-day course on the basics of gummi formulation and process. It will cover the application of scientific principles as well as technique for making gummies. The course will be a combination of lectures and lab training, with hands-on opportunities to make both traditional and vegetarian formulations. Lectures will include starch and starchless process, with emphasis on the starchless depositing process in the lab.

This is a great opportunity for those just entering the confectionery industry as well as a refresher course for those who are seeking some extra practice in a small group setting. Take advantage today since space is limited! Call for more information.
