IMAGINE – Presented by Claire Smith, Forbes Meisner

IMAGINE – Presented by Claire Smith, Forbes Meisner Pty Ltd at the 3D Foodprinting Conference Asia-Pacific Edition, 2 May 2017, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.

Dr Dennis Waitley, whom I have had the pleasure of meeting, once said, ‘You have all the reasons in your world to achieve your grandest dreams. Innovation, plus imagination equals realisation.’

Imagination is the starting point of all great innovation.

We are only just beginning to realise the global-future for 3D food printing and its’ potential to provide exciting, groud-breaking opportunities in food innovation. There are  so many possibilities for this technology; everything from solving world-food-crises to designing fabulous wedding cakes at ‘off-the-shelf’ prices. The next great chapter in the history of food.

What, When, Where: The 3D Food Printing Conference Asia-Pacific Edition, May 02, 2017, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia

The conference is supported by Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA).

Scope: As with every 3D printing application, there is a lot of hype going on with 3D Food printing. Statements like ‘a 3D Food Printer in every home in 2 years time’ can be heard all the time. Also many start-ups introduce 3D Food printers and people can already now eat 3D printed dinners in restaurants, as it happened during the 2016 European edition of the 3D Food Printing Conference. The reality is that a lot of research and development needs to be done. The promises however are huge, both for professional and consumer markets.

For red meat, 3D printing represents an exciting opportunity to add value to current secondary cuts, trims and by products by developing “meat ink”. Furthermore, in the aged care sector there is a demand for food that is easier to chew and 3D printing provides an opportunity for the red meat industry to offer high protein meals that can be presented in various shapes and sizes, more appetizing that the classical pureed food.

There is a need for creation new business models to meet the demands of different markets who want personalized approaches to nutrients or textures, rather than the current whole muscle product.

The 3D Food Printing Conference will tackle all aspects of these new market opportunities and challenges.

Focus topics:

  • 3D Printing Technology for Value-Added Red Meat
  • Food components: protein, carbohydrates, and fats
  • Custom Nutrition
  • Food Design
  • New value chains
  • Hardware developments
  • Software developments
  • Business models

The 3D Food Printing Conference offers the attendee a platform on the crossroads of science, technology; business in 3D Food Printing. Share knowledge, learn from other professionals and start networking.

Target: Meat producers & meat processing companies | Suppliers to the food industry | Agricultural industry | Hardware / software suppliers | Food research institutions | Regulatory bodies | Trendwatchers | Investors
