Food and health experts to attend Sweden conference
Malmö Exhibition and Conference Centre, Malmö, Sweden, 25th-27th October 2006

Leading international players in food science will descend on Malmö, Sweden, in September 2006 for the International Food & Health Innovation Conference (IFHIC 2006).

Diet-related disorders are reaching epidemic proportions in much of the world and pose a major threat to public health. IFHIC 2006 will look at how new science-based food concepts (functional foods) can combat these diseases. These new food concepts will be considered from both a scientific and a commercial standpoint.

The conference will be addressed by leading voices such as Professor Philip James, Chairman of the International Obesity Task Force, Dr Fred Brouns of Cerestar Cargill R&D and Professor David Jenkins of St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto.

They will be joined by many more world-renowned experts from academia, industry, government and networking organisations.

The International Food & Health Innovation Conference 2006 is hosted by the Skåne Food Innovation Network and co-hosted by Vinnova, the Swedish Agency for Innovation Systems. Among co-sponsors is EFFoST, the European Federation of Food Science and Technology. The conference is organised in close cooperation with the Functional Food Science Centre at Lund University, the School of Economics & Management at Lund University, and the regional inward investment agency, Position Skåne.
