IFT 2014: What’s hot in science and technology?

Some of world’s top food science and technology professionals will come together later this month at IFT. If you’re more ‘science focused’  than trends guru, check out our guide to the top science and technology sessions this year.

With more than 18,000 of the world’s top food and nutrition industry experts expected to descend on New Orleans for the IFT Annual Meeting & Food Expo between June 21st and 24th, and more than 900 exhibitors and 100 peer reviewed scientific sessions to take your pick from, the FoodNavigator team has come up with a hit list of the key scientific sessions to check out.

From sensory science and food technology, to the challenges of feeding the world and reducing waste, and the growing interest and controversy over nanotechnologies and GMOs – the IFT sessions have it all. But figuring out where you want to be, and when, can be a major challenge.

Here is the FoodNavigator and FoodNavigator-USA guide to some of the top science and technology focused talks at IFT this year. Check out our interactive map to the 'do not miss' sessions on key topic areas.

Please note that this is not an exhaustive list of the science sessions at IFT, and also discounts many sessions focused on trends, business, regulations, and strategy.

You can view the full details of these sessions and find information on the rest of the sessions taking place at IFT by visiting the IFT website .
