2019 AIFST Convention

July 1, 2019 @ 7:30 am - July 2, 2019 @ 6:30 pm

Skills Impact is proud to support the 2019 AIFST Convention. Join your industry colleagues to grow, learn and connect.

The 2019 AIFST Convention will once again bring together an exciting, diverse and experienced line-up of international and local speakers to share their knowledge, insights and learnings about what the future holds for the food industry both here and beyond our shores.

The theme of Feeding the Future = challenges and opportunities is designed to encourage us to look to the future – what will the industry look like, what will consumers be looking for and, most importantly, how do we as food industry professionals provide for that?

The two-day Convention program features 70 speakers across 20 plenary and breakout sessions on the key topics of:

  • Food Safety
  • Nutrition and Consumer Science
  • Supporting the Future Industry –
    • education to build future capability
    • food regulation
    • humanitarian food science and technology
    • sustainable food packaging
  • “What are you doing about?” covering topics such as traceability, food waste and the future of protein


The technical program will be complimented by 20+ exhibitors and networking events such as the Wine & Cheese night and Young Professionals in Food & 2019 National Mentoring Networking Breakfast.

AIFST will recognise the commitment and excellence of its members at the annual awards ceremony.

Register now and take advantage of the early bird rate before it flies out the door.
