Food meets HighTech

What will the food system of the future look like? And what will be the role of food technology? Will Artificial Intelligence (AI) play a dominant role in steering manufacturing processes? To increase efficiency by preventing maintenance and reduce failure costs? Which alternatives are out there to increase food safety? And how can we assure the required transparency in the food chain? Fact is in 2050 over 9 billion people have to rely on food security. To make this happen the food industry needs to produce more efficient, effective, sustainable and perhaps very different.

More information

IFFI has been asked to fill in the ‘Food Innovation’ module (December 2nd, afternoon) with three keynote speakers, who all discuss innovation in the chain. 

Have a look at the CONCEPT program!

At the Food Technology Event 2021 IFFI hosts the Food Innovation module. IFFI members are invited to present the impact of hightech on food innovation. Which technologies are available today to produce foods which have not been produced before? How do we innovate with our customers and consumers online? What will be the impact of digitization of food modelling? And many more questions about foreign technologies and future foods will be answered by producers of food ingredients.
