Paradigm Shifts: Food In The Twenty-First Century

SAAFoST’s KwaZulu-Natal Branch is proud to host the 24th Biennial Congress and, in line with changing dynamics, in the wake of the world’s most challenging hurdle – the COVID-19 pandemic –  we are excited to bring you the first-ever VIRTUAL SAAFoST Congress.

The 2021 theme “Paradigm Shifts – Food in the 21st Century” represents the continuous dynamic changes the food industry faces and challenges.  As much as we look forward, we must keep in mind the basics and learnings from the past. It is the ultimate paradox. Our knowledge and technology are advancing in leaps and bounds compared to the fundamental basics that form the foundation of food science and technology. Spare a thought of how COVID-19 could have been prevented, had wet markets in China adhered to food safety protocols.
