Join your ADS colleagues this year for an enjoyable and educational meeting in Norfolk, Virginia at the Norfolk Waterside Marriott.  Perched in the heart of the city’s charming downtown district, the hotel is conveniently connected to the Waterside Convention Center, also just moments from the USS Wisconsin and cruises on the Spirit of Norfolk.

If you’re making dressings, sauces or other condiment products or supplying to those who do, this is an event you don’t want to miss.  Education abounds through a variety of technical sessions that provide know-how and solutions, from Your Best is Next, Compliance to Food Industry Scorecards, Natural Preservatives: A Peek Behind the Curtain, to a Sensory Science Workshop.  This year will also feature a Packaging Workshop!  Don’t forget about the Information Open House, the only ADS-sponsored tabletop exhibit of the year, where one-on-one introductions are made, and new business relationships are forged.  These are just a few of the benefits you’ll experience when you attend this annually celebrated industry meeting!

Committee Descriptions

Executive Technical Board

The Executive Technical Board (ETB) works with staff to direct and supervise the ADS Technical Program, which ensures that Association members remain proactive on technical issues affecting the industry (e.g., labeling, food safety, processing, and preservation).  Committees operating under the purview of the ETB include the Technical and Quality Assurance Committees.

The ETB is overseeing ADS-funded research that will explore the microbiological risks related to ingredients (raw and treated) and in-process steps.  The ETB continues to work with a representative of the USDA on a buffering capacity model for dressings.  Phase 1 of the study was published in the April 2020 issue of the Journal of Food Science, and Phase 2 of the study is underway.

Technical Committee

The Technical Committee undertakes research projects with a focus on ingredients, finished products, methods, equipment and instrumentation to advance the knowledge of the dressings and sauces industry.  The Committee is undertaking the following projects:

  • Evaluate umami flavor enhancers for sodium reduction
  • Effects of processing on finished products as it relates to rheology, sensory, particle size and microscopy.

Additionally, Dr. Gokila Thangavel, Kemin Food Technologies will present the topic, Clean Label Ingredients/Antimicrobials for Dressings/Sauces.”

Quality Assurance Committee

The Quality Assurance Committee reviews new instrumentation and analyses for dressings and sauces and ensures that the ADS technical manuals – Quality Assurance Guidelines (QAG) Manual and the Methods and Procedures Manual (MAPMAN) – remain current and progressive.

The Committee is currently reviewing the following technical manual sections:

  • Section VII, “Production Documentation Guidelines” of the Quality Assurance Guidelines (QAG) Manual.
  • “Considerations in the Production of Shelf Stable, Hot Filled Salsa” in Section XI, “Industry Guidelines” of the QAG Manual

ADS Packaging Committee

The mission of the Packaging Committee is to address current and relevant needs of ADS and provide a forum for discussion of packaging-related issues and subsequent action. The goals of the Committee are:  (1)  to further the interests and provide direction, education and training to ADS on all matters related to packaging and packaging systems, and (2) to support and promote interests and objectives of the members of ADS by providing guidance on technical, operational, environment/sustainability (materials, processes and practices) and regulatory issues pertaining to the packaging industry. The activities of the Committee are chosen to meet these goals.  During the April 30 Committee meeting, attendees will determine future projects of most benefit to ADS members.

Membership Advisory Council

The ADS Membership Advisory Council promotes membership in the Association through prospecting efforts, member retention, satisfaction and endorsement.  The Council also capitalizes on member talent to improve Association programs for the benefit of ADS members.  Have a prospect?  Please send the company name and contact information to Alesia Winters at [email protected].

ads tech meeting 18


Norfolk Waterside Marriott

ads tech meeting 17The Association for Dressings & Sauces, on behalf of its members, has reserved a block of rooms at ‎the Norfolk Waterside Marriott, at a discounted group rate.  All rates are exclusive of applicable taxes.  ‎The current state and local taxes are 13.170%.‎

Norfolk Waterside Marriott
235 E Main St,
Norfolk, VA 23510

+1 800-874-0264

Single or Double Occupancy: $189

Rooms at the special group rate are available on a first come, first served basis to our attendees while the block lasts.  Once the block is full, rooms and room rates are based on availability.

To make hotel reservations, click on this LINK –   or call toll-free at +1 800-874-0264 and be sure to identify yourself as part of ADS.

To guarantee your reservation, you must provide a credit card number.  If using a credit card to secure the reservation, your card will not be charged until you depart the hotel.  You may cancel your reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel up to 24 hours prior to your scheduled arrival.  Cancellations received by the hotel after that time will be subject to a cancellation fee of one night’s room and tax.

If you check out of the hotel prior to the reserved check-out date, the hotel will charge you an early check-out fee equal to one night’s room and tax.  If you wish to avoid an early check-out fee, make sure to notify the hotel either at or before check-in of any change in planned length of stay.

Check-in at the hotel is after 4:00 p.m., and check-out is 11:00 a.m.  Luggage storage arrangements for early arrivals, or late departures, can be made with the bell captain.

Identifying yourself as part of ADS or The Association for Dressings & Sauces group helps place you in the ADS room block in either hotel.

Booking your room in the ADS block is extremely important because the Association, on behalf of the members, has committed revenue to the hotel for a specified number of hotel rooms.  If ADS does not use the specified number of hotel rooms, which can happen when attendees book in other hotels or outside of the ADS block, the Association may be monetarily penalized for un-booked hotel rooms in our block.  We appreciate your willingness to assist us in avoiding unnecessary penalties by booking in the meeting hotel and identifying yourself as part of the ADS group when making your reservation.
