New smart food technologies to feature at foodpro 2023

Food and beverage topic experts and representatives from leading companies will unpack next-generation solutions, product innovations, trends and technologies in an all-new double program line-up at this year’s foodpro 2023 event.

Presentations will take place over four days from 23-26 July at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

New to foodpro 2023, the Product Innovation Stage sponsored by Wiley will showcase the latest product developments to support the evolving food manufacturing industry. Located in the Plant Equipment Zone, speakers will cover topics such as connected packaging, digitalisation and functional ingredients.

Also featuring for the first time at foodpro 2023, the Schneider Electric Smart Food Lounge, will host drop-in presentations focused on the theme of smart food, encompassing efficiency and sustainability of the food manufacturing supply chain. This area will cover trends, technologies and solutions to support compliance and traceability whilst reducing waste and inefficiencies.

foodpro Product Manager Felicity Parker says the presentations are invaluable for visitors and exhibitors to learn about what’s driving the industry currently and into the future.

“foodpro is always more than just a chance for suppliers to exhibit,” she said. “We’re pleased that this year to offer a range of new features with opportunities for learning and discovery including our dedicated presentation areas.”

In addition to the new stages, association partner, the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP), will be hosting two training courses at foodpro on Monday, 24 July centred around the fast-growing Flexible Packaging segment and Active and Intelligent Packaging.

The Australian Institute of Food Science & Technology will also be hosting its annual convention during the four days of foodpro. The theme for AIFST 23, ‘The Science of Food – Security and Sustainability’, will speak to the challenges and exciting opportunities ahead for the agri-food industry and the important role food science and technology will play.
