PACK 2017 : 2nd Innovations in Food Packaging, Shelf Life and Food Safety Conference


When Oct 3, 2017 - Oct 6, 2017
Where Stadthalle Erding, Munich, Germany
Submission Deadline Apr 24, 2017
Categories    food science   food packaging   food shelf life   food safety

Call For Papers

In recent years, the development of novel food packaging methods and techniques has not only increased the shelf life of foods, but also improved their safety and quality.

Following the success of the first conference in 2015, Innovations in Food Packaging, Shelf Life and Food Safety will provide a platform for delegates from industry and academia to discuss and develop new concepts and technologies required to advance the development of new packaging materials, explore technologies for food applications, and examine the influence of packaging materials on shelf life and food safety.

The conference will also focus on food package sustainability, including bio-based packaging materials such as edible films which are the focus of new research.


Abstract Submission Deadline: 24th April 2017

Oral and paper abstracts are now invited on the following topics. They should be submitted using the online abstract submission system.
