3D food printing is the process of manufacturing food products using a variety of additive manufacturing techniques. Most commonly, food grade syringes hold the printing material, which is then deposited through a food grade nozzle layer by layer. The most advanced 3D food printers have pre-loaded recipes on board and also allow the user to remotely design their food on their computers, phones or some IoT device. The food can be customized in shape, color, texture, flavor or nutrition, which makes it very useful in various fields such as space exploration and healthcare.
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, caterers / restaurants are offering printed desserts. Some even claim that there will be a 3D food printer in every home soon.
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?
Focus topics of the conference program are:
- Research and development (taste, texture, structure, flavor, color, nutrition)
- Technologies for 3D Food Printing
- Ingredients for 3D Food Printing
- Business Models
- Customization/ Co-creation
- On-demand and on-the-go production
- Patent / Legal and Regulatory issues
- Investment opportunities
