AIFST 2021 Convention

The Australian Institute of Food Science & Technology will be hosting their annual convention during the four days of foodpro. This year's theme will centre around 'Food Science - Delivering in a Changing World'.

11 - 12 October 2021
Novotel, Sydney Olympic Park

Running concurrently with foodpro this year, the Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology (AIFST) will once again be holding their annual convention in 2021.

Largely through the effects of the global pandemic, the last 12 months has seen tremendous changes in our way of life, way of working and way of thinking. This year’s convention picks up on this theme, with a focus on some of the challenges and opportunities presented to food science and the food industry in a world where “change” can seem to be the only constant.

 Join your industry in October for this long-anticipated event to grow, learn and connect as we work together to redefine the future of food.

Food Science – Delivering in a Changing World

Over two days with plenary and four concurrent session streams, the convention will feature more than 60 scientific and food industry speakers from home and abroad. Here’s a sneak peek at what you can expect from the two-day program.

Food Safety

Featuring strongly throughout the program, this stream will include discussion on several key areas. Take a deep dive into the world of microbiological safety, allergens, traceability systems and many more challenges, issues and trends we're seeing in the food industry.

Food Science

Expect to hear industry experts discuss advances in nutrition developing in the industry, including personalised nutrition. Sensory and consumer science will be presented on, as well as a look into new opportunities at the interface of food science with each of these disciplines.

Food Systems

The sustainability and resilience of food systems will be examined through contrasting lenses, as speakers dissect different points along the food supply chain. Hear about new and emerging food crops, cellular agriculture, fermentation systems, waste valorisation and more.

Food Technology

Food technologies have come a long way in recent years. Gain unique insights into where technology in the food industry is headed as the program presents case studies on innovations that have been made in processing and packaging technology.

Plus, by registering to attend the AIFST 2021 Convention, you will automatically be registered to attend foodpro 2021, ensuring you have the chance to connect with industry leaders and key decision makers, all in one space.
