Food Technology is a constantly evolving industry, where companies are often looking for ways to make the food we eat safer, tastier and cheaper. Typically, households spend nearly £5,000 a year on groceries, swelling the coffers of an industry with a £76 billion turnover. Food and drink accounts for 16 per cent of the UK’s total manufacturing sector and employs up to 400,000 people. London’s food sector is worth a massive £17bn with small and medium food businesses providing the majority of the industry's 300,000 jobs.

Track 1: Breaking Innovations in Food Science world
The food and drinks manufacturing industry is a diverse and complex sector. The food and drinks manufacturing industry has strong links with down- and upstream sectors like agriculture, life sciences, The health, packaging, logistics and retail, which also from an innovation perspective do play an important role. UK consumers spent £196bn on food, drink and catering in 2012. The sector contributed over £103bn to the economy, £19bn in exports, and 3.7 million jobs in close to 200,000 firms. UK is one of the most well placed country in the world having 0.9% of the world’s population, but produces 4.3% of its researchers, 9.5% of research paper downloads, 11.6% of citations, and 15.9% of the world’s most highly-cited articles. The Food economy is the entire network of scientific innovators, producers, distributors, consumers, and disposers of food and drink. It stretches from the lab to landfill. A £70 million government investment in an Agri-Tech Catalyst to provide a single fund for projects, all the way from the laboratory to market.

Track 2: Food Safety, Preservation, Quality Standard and Systems Management
Traceability is a way of responding to potential risks that can arise in food and feed, to ensure that all food products in the EU are safe for European citizens to eat. The EU is providing almost €12 million to the 5-year TRACE project, which kicked off in January 2005. Supported by over 50 European organizations and one from China, the initiative will deliver integrated traceability systems, guides to traceability best practice, and food verification systems, specifically in the mineral water, chicken, meat, and honey and cereal sectors. Integrated traceability in fresh food would build and improve upon existing food tracing protocols

Track 3: Food Processing and Packaging Technologies
Modern food packaging technology and food processing innovation brings traditional foods into a global arena which increasingly emphasizes their commercial and economic aspects. Food packaging makes up two fifths of the household waste. Packaging also accounts for an increasing share of the costs of the food processing industry, rising from about 4% in 1947 to 10% in 1987, and continuing to rise. On average, the cost of packaging materials represents about one-fifth of material costs, however, in 10 out of 40 food industry sectors, packaging costs exceed the costs of the edible food stuff ingredients. FMCG company has generated total revenue of $288 million. And, UK has the highest share, $87.9 million, among all the countries. Two biggest growing economies have contributed $65.6 M and $46.6 million only. High-pressure pasteurization technology and Robots in the plant were the two greatest innovation in food processing world.

Track 4: Nutrition and Nutritional Management
Nutrition is central to the sustainable development agenda that is taking shape in the form of the Sustainable Development Goals, chemical engineering, production planning, market and consumer research, and financial management.  There are more than 40 University in UK having food science course and 10 world best research organizations working on the field of food safety, security, nutrition and wellness, sustainability, and related ethical and socio-economic issues and organizing many food and health science events. Food and Drink manufacturing is the single largest manufacturing sector in the UK, employing approximately 500,000 people and second in terms of world productivity, behind Canada. The sector is one of the only ones in the UK to have been creating jobs consistently through the economic downturn. However, the UK Food and Drink industry will need around 137,000 new recruits over the next decade, with 45,000 of those jobs requiring high level skills. Fast food market has grows upto 7% in 2010 to reach 13.5 billion USD.

Track 5: Food and Public Health
National food, nutrition and health policy and practice are helpful to strengthen a country backbone. In the UK over 60% of adults are overweight or obese, and 20% of those adults are obese. This is contributing to a growing social and economic burden of chronic diseases. There is a range of potential policy responses to the crisis in laboratory technicians and marketing associate professionals. After finishing their degrees, approximately 14% of foods sciences graduates go on to further study, either full time or part time while working. As a food scientist or food technologist you would also gain knowledge and experience of areas like chemical engineering, production planning, market and consumer research, and financial management.  There are more than 40 University in UK having food science course and 10 world best research organizations working on the field of food safety, security, nutrition and wellness, sustainability, and related ethical and socio-economic issues. Food and Drink manufacturing is the single largest manufacturing sector in the UK, employing approximately 500,000 people and second in terms of world productivity, behind Canada. The sector is one of the only ones in the UK to have been creating jobs consistently through the economic downturn. However, the UK Food and Drink industry will need around 137,000 new recruits over the next decade, with 45,000 of those jobs requiring high level skills. Food enzyme produced industrially by extraction from plant and animal tissues, or by fermentation of microorganisms, are assessed for safety.

Track 6: Application of Food Technology
Food is fuel, so of course it's fundamentally important to the wellbeing of every living human being. Top professions for food science graduates working in the UK include quantity assurance professionals and technicians, agricultural scientists, As a food scientist or food technologist you would also gain knowledge and experience of areas like chemical engineering, production planning, market and consumer research, and financial management. There are more than 40 University in UK having food science course and 10 world best research organizations working on the field of food safety, security, nutrition and wellness, sustainability, and related ethical and socio-economic issues. Food and Drink manufacturing is the single largest manufacturing sector in the UK, employing approximately 500,000 people and second in terms of world productivity, behind Canada. The sector is one of the only ones in the UK to have been creating jobs consistently through the economic downturn. However, the UK Food and Drink industry will need around 137,000 new recruits over the next decade, with 45,000 of those jobs requiring high level skills.

Track 7: Nutritional Deficiencies and Nutraceuticals
The health and welfare of people everywhere depend on good agricultural yields and on the reliable storage, successful processing and safe handling of all types of food. A consumer trend has been an increasing demand for healthy food. The industry will continue to respond to this trend through ensuring ethical manufacturing, environmentally friendly production methods, organic production and authentic regional ingredients. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey figures report U.S.-born adults’ hypertension control rate, although improving, still hovered below 50% in 2010 which directly and indirectly effect Nutrition and Nutraceuticals areas. A healthy diet with adequate calories and appropriate levels of key nutrients is needed to meet basic metabolic and nutritional requirements in order to maintain physical and mental functioning and growth, whereas inadequate nutrition can lead to loss of functioning and development or progression of disease. Deficiencies in key nutrients can lead to health and development problems. Nutrition is recognized as one of the major determinants of successful ageing, defined as the ability to maintain three key behaviours: low risk of disease and disease related disability, high mental and physical function, and active engagement of life.

Track 8: Sustainable Food Security
Food is a global commodity that's traded internationally to supply supermarkets with all-year-round greens; it has also become a commodity traded in the financial markets, making its price more volatile to short term spikes that leave the poorest and most vulnerable struggling to feed themselves. Estimates suggest that in a little over 40 years we will need twice as much food as we now produce in order to feed the rapidly-expanding population. Even if we doubled production, questions would still exist over how this food could be fairly, efficiently and sustainably distributed. In some regions food scarcity is on the increase, whilst in other regions more than 30% of food produced goes to waste. FAO in 2010 suggested that 925 million people are undernourished. 19 million or just 2 percent of these are located in developed countries. The remainder lives in developing countries, with the majority, 578 million living in Asia and the Pacific.

Track 9: Food Nanotechnology
Nanotechnologies enable scientists to manipulate matter at the nanoscale. Nanomaterials have a range of potential applications in the food sector that may offer benefits to both consumers and industry. These include creating foods with unaltered taste but lower fat, salt or sugar levels, or improved packaging that keeps food fresher for longer or tells consumers if the food inside is spoiled. Manipulating food at this scale could help to develop lower-fat foods that still taste great, or allow manufacturers to pack more nutrients into otherwise vitamin-free foods. The application of nanotechnologies in the food industry is at an early stage, and to the best of our knowledge the UK food and drink manufacturing industry does not currently use engineered nanomaterials in food products, their processing or their packaging.

Track 10: Food Biotechnology
In the nearly 20 years since they were first commercialized, GM crop technologies have seen dramatic uptake. Experts say that they have increased agricultural production by more than US$98 billion and saved an estimated 473 million kilograms of pesticides from being sprayed. Researchers, farmers, activists and GM seed companies all stridently promote their views, but the scientific data are often inconclusive or contradictory. Food preservation meetings can explore the fascinating world of food preservation both at home and in larger scale operations and the role science plays in delaying food decay and keeping food nutritious and safe from farm to fork.
