This year’s foodpro is set to be an educational experience, with a packed programme of topical seminars and industry expert speakers, including Brett Wiskar of Wiley, Ron Cotterman of Sealed Air and Glen Pinna of Biotech Laboratories.

The educational sessions will run throughout each day of the show, covering a wide range of topics, including: “Taking action to tackle food waste challenges”; “Mixed reality – the future of decision making in the food supply chain”; “A new era in foreign body identification – learn how to protect your brand”; and “Intelligent information driven manufacturing: the path to Industry 4.0”.

One highlight will be the seminar on “Labelling and the law”, presented by Andrew Davies from Food Authority NSW. This will cover the Food Authority’s labelling provisions under the Food Standards Code and outline the approach to compliance and enforcement. Davies will also introduce the new labelling portal that provides industry and consumers with an easy to understand guide to labelling laws.

In addition to the foodpro sessions, Food Innovation Australia Limited (FIAL) will run an additional education programme as part of the show’s Supply Chain Integrity Zone Initiative. Seminars in this area will focus on traceability and security in the supply chain, looking at both practical solutions and industry forecasts for the future, with solutions geared towards smaller scale manufacturers.

foodpro event director Peter Petherick describes the opportunities presented through the seminars as unique.

“We have some of the best in Australia’s food manufacturing and processing industry gathered together in one place, and the experts are sharing vital insight that you probably aren’t going to get anywhere else,” he says. “I can’t think of a more important place to be for anyone who wants an idea of what the future holds for the industry.”

Colocated with foodpro at the Sydney International Convention Centre, the Australian Institute of Food Science & Technology‘s annual convention includes a full two-day programme with a line up of speakers that include Barry Irvin, AM, of Bega Cheese, Professor Martin Cole of CSIRO, and Brianna Casey of Foodbank. foodpro visitors can book a convention pass to gain access to the sessions that will focus on food safety, packaging, sensory, nutrition and more.

All foodpro seminars are free to attend and the full programme can be found on the foodpro website. The show will be held at the Sydney International Convention Centre from 16th to 19th July 2017.
