IUFoST partners with Fi Global to host cutting edge
science program as part of Health and Nutrition Week
IUFoST's Mission: "Strengthening Global Food Science and Technology for Humanity"
OCTOBER 2018 - The International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST) will partner with Fi Global and Hi Europe to host a workshop to highlight the potential impact of new food technologies on consumer health. The event is being held in cooperation with the Association of German Food Technologists (GDL), Gesellschaft Deutscher Lebensmitteltechnologen e.V. The workshop will be held in Frankfurt, Germany on Wednesday 28th November as part of "Health and Nutrition Week" http://www.healthandnutritionweek.com during the Hi Europe exhibition https://www.figlobal.com/hieurope

The focus of the program will be "Healthy Foods Through New Food Processing Technologies". Over the past half-century, considerable research has shown that poor diets contribute to several hundred thousand premature deaths annually. That research has served as the foundation of the Food Industries' mission: to be the vehicle for improving consumer health. New food technologies will be fundamental for achieving this aim. The session will be moderated by Professor Dr. Dietrich Knorr, Food Biotechnology & Food Process Engineering, Technical University Berlin and IUFoST President 2016 - 2018. Expert speakers and world-renowned scientists will address critical areas pertaining to the supply of nutritious, sustainable and safe food using emerging technologies. Senior management, business strategists, research and development scientists and food professionals will all benefit by attending this event.
