The Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology (AIFST) will be hosting a series of seminars, some of them packaging-related, in Sydney's Darling Harbour alongside Foodpro in less than three weeks.
This year’s theme is The Future of Food, and here are some of the packaging highlights to expect from 17-19 July:
- Sealed Air's Matthew Fenech will be speaking on 'The future of packaging: Trends driving the next wave of innovation'.
- The CSIRO's Dr Roman Buckow will address the use of high-value functional ingredients using extrusion porosification technology (EPT) including 3D ink technology.
- Dr Paul Gurr from the University of Melbourne will be speaking on 'Packaging for export: guaranteeing food safety',
- The Result Group's Michael Dossor will address anti-counterfeiting with his talk on "innovating to keep ahead of the pack".
Mintel's Justin Nel will also be addressing the topic of understanding the iGeneration and Millennials.
Food processing-related sessions will cover the consumer of the future; future technologies and innovations advancing the food industry; managing emerging threats and vulnerabilities; navigating the export and regulatory market; and insights into current scientific research that will underpin next 50 years of the Australian food industry.
