Mapping the future of food science is the aim of the Institute of Food Science & Technology’s (IFST’s) jubilee conference next month, according to its chief executive Jon Poole.

In this video interview, Poole told FoodManufacture.co.uk the two-day London conference aimed to showcase the contribution of science and technology across all areas of the food industry: engineering, safety, law and other areas.

“The conference is intended for anyone who has an interest in food science and technology and works in the food industry – or would like to work in the food industry,” said Poole. “We expect to attract food industry specialists, academics and students – because they are the future of the industry.”

The future of the food industry’

A number of sponsored places will be available for students, he added.

This year’s keynote address at the organisation’s 50th year jubilee conference will be delivered by Dr Celia Caulcott, director innovation and skills at the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council. The title of her presentation will be Science in food: a current opportunity, a future challenge.

The IFST jubilee conference will take place at the Holiday Inn, Cromwell Road, London between May 14–15. More details are available here
