AIFST23 Annual Convention

  • Mon 24 July - Tue 25 July, 9:00am - 5:00pm

The theme for AIFST23, The Science of Food Security & Sustainability, speaks to the challenges and exciting opportunities ahead for the agri-food industry and the important role food science and technology will play. In 2023, we look forward to seeing you in person - AIFST 23 will feature a comprehensive technical program and the great networking opportunities offered by our face-to-face event. This year we are co-located with foodpro - a great opportunity to attend 2 events in the one venue. Over two days with plenary and three concurrent session streams, the convention will feature more than 50 scientific and food industry speakers from across the agri-food sector. Food safety will feature strongly, alongside advances in health and nutrition, sensory and consumer science, food security and resilience, sustainability, and packaging.
