Food Factory 2010
June 30th - July 2nd 2010, Gothenburg, Sweden
We are happy to announce that the 5th International Conference on the Food Factory for the Future will be held in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Innovative food processing and sustainable food production for the future, the theme of Food Factory 2010, emphasises important challenges that the food sector will meet in the future to satisfy consumer preference, acceptance and needs and to accomplish a sustainable development.
Over the past years, health & wellness, convenience, social & environmental responsibility and pleasure have been the major drivers of food choice, but they have to be coupled with the basic demands of consumers for food safety, storage stability and value for money. A strong knowledge base, innovative processing and reliable tools are required to effectively transform raw materials into safe and sustainable food products or ingredients able to deliver specific functions.
The conference will focus on four themes:
• Processing for tailored quality
• Sustainable food production
• Smart process control and automation
• Controlling microorganisms
The conference will be an opportunity to share and transfer knowledge amongst food industry and the scientific community, as well as to take part in an active and creative forum for development of new ideas and potential innovations.
June/July is a perfect time to visit Gothenburg and enjoy the long days. Take the opportunity to experience Gothenburg’s Southern and Northern archipelago which consists of dozens of islands and stretches into the sea next to the city’s coastline.
We look forward to seeing you in Gothenburg.
