5th International Symposium on Food Packaging – Scientific Developments Supporting Safety and Innovation

Berlin, Germany
14/11/2012 – 16/11/2012

2012 5th Packaging Symposium

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES

The ILSI Europe International Symposia on Food Packaging are held every four years and are internationally recognised as a scientific forum to discuss the science that ensures the safety and quality of food packaging. The upcoming 5th symposium will emphasise innovations in the area of food packaging. Furthermore, participants will have the opportunity to review and debate recent advances in the science, which supports the demonstration of the safety and quality of food packaging. The dissemination of results of on-going research will be combined with examining the implications for the future of controlling packaging for foodstuffs.

AUDIENCE

This multi-disciplinary meeting will be of interest to those active in issues associated with the safety and quality of food packaging, particularly food scientists, chemists, mathematicians, physicists, packaging specialists, control authorities, regulators and risk assessors.

PROGRAMME

The format of the symposium includes invited lectures, short communications on selected abstracts and poster sessions.

This three-day conference will be structured around the following four concept areas:

  1. Nanotechnology and emerging technologies,
  2. Sustainable food contact materials,
  3. Risk Assessment of complex mixtures and
  4. Effects of food processing and packaging treatments.

The first three sessions will all cover toxicological and analytical aspects as well as new developments in these areas. The last session on effects of food processing and packaging treatments will address experts working at the interface between food processing and packaging.
