The 3D printing technology will be fundamental to the way people interact with food in the future. Supermarkets are already testing to 3D print customized cakes, restaurants are offering printed desserts. Some even claim that there will be a 3D food printer in every home in just two years.
However, much research is required to change the hype into reality. Which industries will be influenced by the technology? Which food components can be printed in the near future? And which aspects should be taken into account to ensure safety and maintainability of 3D printed food?
The 3D Food Printing Conference is part of the two-day Agri Food Innovation Event (June 27-28, 2018) which includes four dedicated conferences Healthy Nutrition Conference, Vertical Farming Conference, 3D Food Printing Conference, Smart Farming Conference, Central expo, 3D Food Printing Masterclass, Networking Dinner and a 3D Food Printing Experience at Wageningen University & Research on June 29.
The location, Brightlands Campus Greenport Venlo, is in a region in which the agri-food business is one of the most productive, sustainable and profitable in the world; where food innovation is in the entrepreneurs’ DNA.
Focus topics of the conference are:
- Research and development (taste, texture, structure, flavor, color, nutrition)
