The Institute of Animal Reproduction and Food Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences together with the TRAFOON – Traditional Food Network to improve the transfer of knowledge for innovation (http://www.trafoon.eu/) invite to the International Food Conference – „Bonding tradition with innovation –  successful strategies in food chain value“.

The conference will take place in Olsztyn, Poland, 12-13 September 2016.

The 21st century in Europe has been marked by a clear division of the food market. On the one hand, consumers are surrounded by the ubiquitous supply of mass-produced standardised and unified global food. On the other, however, there is a clearly noticeable growth of interest among consumers and producers in traditional food, which stands out with its distinctive quality. Such phenomenon results from the increased awareness of the society, paying more attention to the prohealth functions of the food consumed.

The „Bonding tradition with innovation –  successful strategies in food chain value“ conference will provide a forum for the exchange of opinion and expertise on the challenges and future prospects for traditional food. Bringing together specialists in different fields, we wish to discuss the possibilities of increasing the attractiveness of traditional food products through the transfer of innovation and research results.

The event is dedicated to scientists conducting research focused on developing and improving traditional food, as well as on introducing products of this type into a human diet. Entrepreneurs, local authorities, social organisations and other entities professionally related to traditional food will also considerably benefit from participation in this conference.

Venue: Institute of Animal Reproduction and Food Research of Polish Academy of Sciences
