    Join us in Sacramento for ACS 2014: Celebrating the American Cheese Plate! Sacramento holds the title of “Farm to Fork Capital” of the United States. As a central location for the state’s agriculture and food production, the city is in a unique position to celebrate the incredible bounty of a vast variety of specialty foods and beverages – including produce, wine, craft beer, and cheese, all produced in or near the central valley of California.

    The 2014 ACS Conference will enhance the idea of local, to reflect the excitement and growth of the artisan and specialty cheese community throughout North America. Just as a good cheese plate brings together a variety of tastes, textures, and experiences, so too will the ACS Conference. Nearly 1,000 industry leaders will come together in Sacramento to celebrate, collaborate, learn from one another, and sample great products.

    Highlights include:

    • Darrell Corti-SmallerOpening celebration in Sacramento’s historic Memorial Auditorium

    • Educational sessions tailored to all industry segments and experience levels
