Printing food using 3D equipment is still in its early stage of development, but is being established gradually in different areas of application. Examples of how food is currently being printed in 3D will be demonstrated during the first ever conference dedicated to the subject, taking place this April 21st in Venlo, The Netherlands.
“Lack of growth, price pressure from food retailers and changing consumer behavior are all creating a challenging environment for the foods sector. New technologies and innovations have the potential to structurally change the food supply chain in the very near future,” says Jelle Groot, Rabobank’s Food and Agribusiness Research and Advisory analyst, who will be discussing 3D food printing in the context of four mind-sets of the dynamic consumer – experience, sustainability, convenience and health.
Among other topics on the agenda of the 3d Food Printing Conference, participants can attend a 3D food printing in catering and gastronomy, Robots in Gastronomy – When will 3D printing Actually print our food and The science and principles of food printing.
