Funding exception:

The blend of vitamins and minerals added to grain products during fortification is called premix. We do not endorse any premix manufacturer. We invite all interested premix companies to sponsor lunches, receptions, or coffee breaks at our events, but to avoid conflicts of interest, we limit annual contributions from premix suppliers. Premix companies are also not represented on the Executive Management Team.
