SAAFoST 2017


The South African Association for Food Science & Technology (SAAFoST) will be holding its 22nd Biennial International Congress and Exhibition from 3-6 September 2017 at the state of the art Century City Conference Centre, Cape Town.

The theme of the congress "A hunger for change: innovations, solutions and emerging technologies" will form a framework to explore solutions to the many challenges that food professionals face in the mission to provide a sustainable supply of safe, satisfying and healthy food.

The programme is designed to cover topical and important issues affecting our profession and will provide a platform for young and established researchers to present their work. In addition to plenary sessions, themed parallel sessions will ensure a broad programme that will appeal to marketing and technical personnel. Speakers will include captains of industry and distinguished invited international food scientists.

The congress aims to attract over 600 delegates, not only from SAAFoST membership but also from the wider food industry locally, regionally and internationally. A trade show will run concurrently.

We invite you to participate in this, the most significant food event of 2017. Your contribution will assist us to keep the registration fees affordable which, in turn, will encourage attendance from the maximum possible number of delegates. Also, as students are the lifeblood of our industry, their registration fees will be heavily subsidised.

In return we offer you a dynamic platform to showcase your brand and expose your products to a highly significant audience. You will be recognised as a sponsor and supporter of the development of food science and technology in Africa.
