Niacet team participates in IFT Fun-Run – July 18, 2016

On Monday July 18th, three of our colleagues participated together with 550 others in the annual IFT fun-run to raise money for the “Feeding Tomorrow’s scholarship fund”.


With a sensational sunrise and Downtown Chicago as a backdrop, Eelco Heintz, Pieter Paul Lamers and Henk Jan van Lent ran the 5K route in respectable times, all finishing well within the top 50. This despite the temperature which already was above 25°C at the start at 6 am.



After a welcome refreshment and something to eat at the finish, busses brought the runners back to their hotel. Later that day they visited the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Meeting and Food Expo which was held in Chicago from July 17 to 19. Many (potential) customers were paid a visit and valuable contacts were made or renewed.
