The FOODIE Conference will discuss emerging technologies for food production, analyze strategies to connect industry and cuisine, and navigate methods to fit the consumer market. This three day conference will bring together leaders in the field of food technology, science, and industry, where attendees will have ample opportunities to network and foster innovation.

Modern consumers want food that is not only safe, but also of high quality. They expect food suppliers to satisfy the consumers’ personal wants and beliefs, as well as pay attention to ethical issues, sustainability, and more. The food industry needs to evolve to meet these needs. Using innovation and engineering, food producers, as well as restauranteurs and even home chefs, can develop technologies and methods to better satiate consumers. With the growing world population and the increasing demand for safe and healthy food, innovative careers are now available in a variety of sectors, including food processing, bioprocessing, ingredient manufacturing, food packaging, machinery, equipment, instrumentation control, and pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and health care.
