South African Association Food Science and Technology (SAAFoST) 22nd Biannual International Congress and Exhibition coming up in Cape Town in 2017.
The Congress theme, "A hunger for change: innovations, solutions and emerging technologies" highlights some of the global food science related challenges and the need for different approaches to solving them. Two main themes, to some extent linked, will form the focus to tie together all the supporting and crucial aspects of food science. These two core themes are, firstly around food, nutrition and health and a consumer focus (marketing, information, education, trends, the role of media and pseudoscience) and secondly, the fact that all these demands have to be met while ensuring sustainability of the food supply, the environment, resources and a growing world population that needs to be fed nutritiously.
