BIOTECHNICA Hosts iFood Conference in Hannover


3/21/2013 1:21:12 PM

March 21, 2013 -- Hannover/Quakenbrück. As Europe’s leading trade fair for biotechnology, the life sciences and laboratory equipment, BIOTECHNICA is extending its coverage of food biotechnology and hosting the next iFood Conference in Hannover from 8 to 10 October. Organized by the German Institute for Food Technology (DIL) and the European research alliance EFFoST, this scientific conference has previously been held in Osnabrück, but as from this year it will be staged under the aegis of BIOTECHNICA. “With the iFood Conference BIOTECHNICA is establishing a really important platform for dialogue between the scientific community and the food industry”, says Dr. Jochen Köckler, member of the Board at Deutsche Messe in Hannover. “The main focus will be on recent developments in food processing such as new food preservation processes and methods of improving the quality and efficiency of our food.”

Science driving innovation in food products

The “i“ in the name iFood stands for “innovation” and innovation is the watchword of the entire program. “The iFood Conference shows the way forward in the dialogue between science and industry. Our efforts here will help to develop new approaches that will effect a lasting change in the practices of the food industry”, adds Dr. Volker Heinz, Director of DIL and founder of the iFood Conference. Automation solutions for food production will also feature strongly in the program.

The Conference will also examine various aspects of the bioeconomy. Contributors will discuss how new technologies can help to accelerate the change from an oil-based economy to a bio-based economy. Key requirements include better use of natural resources, reduced water consumption, improved energy efficiency and the commercial use of renewable raw materials.

This year’s iFood Conference at BIOTECHNICA sets out to show how scientific theory is translated into industrial practice. A high-powered team of research scientists will be joined in Hannover by senior representatives of some of the world’s leading food companies. Together they will be shaping the Conference agenda and delivering the keynote speeches.

More information about the Conference can be found online at: www.ifoodconference.com.
