Curated with the intent to inform, challenge and ultimately provide solutions to issues and developments in the industry, foodpro is presenting a series of free seminars. Coinciding with foodpro 2017, industry experts will deliver seminars that are pertinent to the food and beverage industry.

For maximum impact in minimal time, the seminar sessions will run throughout the day on a diverse range of topics that includes: Taking action to tackle food waste challenges; Mixed reality — the future of decision making in the food supply chain; A new era in foreign body identification — learn how to protect your brand; and Intelligent information driven manufacturing: the path to Industry 4.0.

Presented by the Food Authority NSW’s Andrew Davies, the ‘Labelling and the Law’ seminar will explain the Food Authority’s labelling provisions under the Food Standards Code and outline the approach to compliance and enforcement. Davies will also introduce the new labelling portal that provides industry and consumers with an easy-to-understand guide to labelling laws. This session will give processors and manufacturers the opportunity to have direct contact and insight into the legal requirements of labelling and how to achieve compliance.

Alongside the sessions provided by foodpro, learning opportunities are furthered by Food Innovation Australia Limited (FIAL), which, as part of the brand new Supply Chain Integrity Zone Initiative, has also curated an educational program. Seminars in this area will focus on traceability and security in the supply chain, looking at both practical solutions and industry forecasts for the future, with solutions geared towards smaller scale manufacturers.

Educational opportunities are furthered by the co-location of the Australian Institute of Food Science & Technology’s (AIFST) annual convention with foodpro. AIFST’s Convention hosts a full two-day program with a line-up of speakers that includes Barry Irvin, AM, of Bega Cheese; Professor Martin Cole of CSIRO; and Brianna Casey of Foodbank. foodpro visitors can book a convention pass to gain access to the sessions that will focus on food safety, packaging, sensory, nutrition and more.

All foodpro seminars are free to attend and interest can be registered via the foodpro website. To get further information on seminar times, visit
