Sustainable food systems
This conference will explore the theme: Sustainable Food Systems - Performing by Connecting.
The transition towards a more sustainable food supply system is critical to guarantee access to safe and nutritious food for the future 9.7 billion world inhabitants, to enable a healthy lifestyle of consumers and to reduce the environmental impact of food production and consumption.
A cross-disciplinary approach is required to accelerate innovation and implementation. Therefore the three sub-themes are:
- Oral processing, digestion and human performance
- Consumer trust, perception and engagement
- Circular food systems and beyond
The Scientific Programme Board is formed by delegates from the Food Sciences Groups of Wageningen University together with Wageningen Food & Biobased Research. Professor Vincenzo Fogliano of Food Quality and Design was appointed Conference Chair.
