Food meets high-tech during Food Technology

Technology plays an important role in achieving an efficient and sustainable food system. To find the right solutions, it is important for the food, beverage and technology world to meet annually to exchange knowledge and start collaborations. Food Technology is this meeting place and therefore Vakblad EVMI and Mikrocentrum jointly organised the second edition on 12 and 13 April 2023 in the Brabanthallen in 's-Hertogenbosch.

The following themes are central:

  • Food processing & machinery
  • Food safety
  • Food innovation & sustainability

Food processing & machinery

Machinery and the processes around it are playing an increasing role in our food production. Reliability, predictability and systems that automate production monitoring are rapidly emerging. Industry 4.0 is becoming dominant: processes are moving from automatic to autonomous, driven by self-learning systems that can guarantee quality by reacting to the slightest changes. Meet solutions in the areas of mechanical engineering, sensors, robotics, vision, photonics, drones, digitization, automation, big data, AI, visualization and related topics such as smart maintenance.

Food Safety

How do we get a grip on the chain and ensure safe food? Topics such as traceability and hygiene play a role. But also cooling techniques or shortening the chain and thus producing closer to the consumer, for example in vertical farms.

Food Technology offers information about solutions in track & trace, fraud protection, distribution, transport, logistics, energy management, storage, food lab, refrigeration, packaging and vertical farming.

Food innovation & sustainability

Technology is constantly showing us new works of art, in greenhouses, in the fields and in factories. But our food itself is also increasingly clever. Animal proteins are being replaced by vegetable proteins, sugars by low-calorie sweeteners and artificial flavors by natural alternatives. What innovative solutions will make (the production of) our food even tastier and healthier in the future? And what other innovations can help us meet the challenges that have come and will come our way?

During Food Technology you will find solutions in the field of further technological solutions, food of the future, product development, vegetable proteins, food printing, etc.
