Push by Australian Government Health to reformulate food
The Federal Department of Health and Ageing is sponsoring the CSIRO to conduct three workshops around Australia as information-sharing forums for industry, government and researchers involved in food innovation and product reformulation.
The workshop programs will include presentations from national and international speakers involved in food innovation and product reformulation as well as opportunities to discuss innovation techniques and challenges.
Presentation topics include:
– Overcoming technical challenges to reformulation such as safety aspects, food structure and sensory attributes.
– Trends in food manufacturing and consumer behaviour towards healthier processed foods.
– Motivations for company reformulation efforts and successes in reaching reduction targets.
– Current and next generation research support and technologies to assist with reformulation.
Melbourne – 24 October 2011
Sydney – 25 October 2011
Brisbane – 27 October 2011
Western Australian participants will be able to join the workshops via video link.
Food industry representatives and researchers are invited to attend these workshops to learn more about current food innovation technology and opportunities for product reformulation.
Attendance at the workshops is free. However, participants are required to register for the workshops as spaces are limited.
