The BCPC Congress
31 Oct 2017 - 01 Nov 2017 • Brighton, United Kingdom
Abstract:
On Day 1 there will be presentations and discussions, in plenary and streamed sessions, on the current EU regulatory environment for plant protection products (chemicals and bio-pesticides) – and how this may change in the EU and the UK post-Brexit. On Day 2 the UK HSE Chemicals Regulation Division will hold an interactive workshop seeking further opinion from delegates on the direction of policy and implementation of a post-Brexit UK-based regulatory regime for chemical and biological pesticides. This will input to HSE’s initiative to understand the needs and concerns of stakeholders as a new system is developed.

Total Food 2017
31 Oct 2017 - 02 Nov 2017 • Norwich, United Kingdom
Abstract:
The Institute of Food Research, on the Norwich Research Park, is hosting an international conference exploring the latest breakthroughs in research into better ways of exploiting waste and co-products from agriculture and food production. Total Food 2017 is the fifth in a series of conferences focused on the sustainable exploitation of agri-food co-products and related biomass, thereby helping to minimise waste. The conference will bring together agri-food companies, scientists, consumer organisations and waste experts to share views and the latest knowledge on ways of minimising and reusing waste. The conference will look at current food waste and its uses, and will explore new ideas and techniques for adding value to it. As well as bioenergy, biofuels and biogas, speakers will talk about extracting bioactive products that boost human health, can be used as food ingredients, as well as providing new sources of animal feed. As well as reducing wastage in the food chain, such innovations are also designed to make the way we produce our food more environmentally sustainable, as well as offering up new income streams to food and farming businesses. Total Food 2017 is being held at the John Innes Centre Conference Centre, on the Norwich Research Park, 31st October – 2nd November 2017.

Food Antioxidants and Functional Ingredients - Shelf Life Extension, Nutrition and Health
13 Nov 2017 - 14 Nov 2017 • London, United Kingdom
Abstract:
Antioxidants are recognised as important components in human and animal nutrition. They also serve as functional ingredients in the food industry, for example, to reduce the oxidative deterioration of oils, fats and lipid based foods. Antioxidants are believed to protect cells and organs from oxidative stress and therefore act beneficially against a number of diseases. Although often seen to exhibit antioxidant activity in vitro, it is unlikely that some bioactive components, such as polyphenols and other phytochemicals, retain those beneficial antioxidant properties when ingested. Indeed, they may act as pro-oxidants with resulting negative consequences. However, they do play an important role and understanding these food components is essential in recognising how they can best be exploited by the industry as processing aids and for improving nutritional value. Making optimal choices to maximise effects for their intended use is paramount in producing cost effective products. Additionally, legislation surrounding this field raises some important challenges with regards to health claims substantiation and the use and marketing of antioxidant functional ingredients.

The main theme of this international conference is of understanding antioxidants in terms of food processing, nutrition and health, NPD and impacts on shelf life including the challenges and strategies for a new generation of antioxidant phytochemicals

Turning Data into Decisions in AgriFood
22 Nov 2017 • London, United Kingdom
Abstract:
Harnessing the power of Big Data to generate new insights, practices and products is one of the key priorities of today's AgriFood supply chain. Numerous sensors and connected devices are deployed to help AgriFood companies to collect data related to production, processing, and distribution of AgriFood products, referred to as Internet of Things (IoT). Software applications with machine learning are required to collect, analyse, and integrate data, connect devices and guide decision making within the AgriFood supply chain. Data can help farmers to optimise inputs and adjust crops and land management regimes depending on many variable conditions between the fields, crop varieties, and climatic conditions. Data can also help suppliers of crop protection products to produce more accurate recommendations, or to gather evidence on their efficacy with more precision, reducing their use and environmental impact.

Sustainable Intensification
28 Nov 2017 - 30 Nov 2017 • Harpenden, United Kingdom
Abstract:
Agriculture accounts for around 70% of the UK land area. It plays an essential role in the rural economy not only through the production of food and other agricultural outputs, but in the delivery of a wide range of additional ecosystem services and environmental outcomes. These include the provision of clean water, the regulation of air quality, flooding, climate and nutrient cycles, biodiversity, cultural, aesthetic and recreational value.

Physics in Food Manufacturing
10 Jan 2018 - 11 Jan 2018 • University of Edinburgh, School of Physics and Ast, United Kingdom
Abstract:
The first annual meeting of the Physics in Food Manufacturing Group will address themes in which physics and academia–industry collaborations are likely to make the greatest impact on challenges currently facing food manufacturing. The meeting will bring together physicists from industry and academia to share progress and discuss challenges in the UK’s largest manufacturing sector, in which Physics plays an important role.
