2nd International Conference on Microbial Food and Feed Ingredients (MiFFI)
It is a great pleasure to announce the 2nd International Conference on Microbial Food and Feed Ingredients (MiFFI) 2020, which will be held on 15-17 April 2020 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
At the conference, we will seek the current best answer to the eternal questions:
- How to preserve food
- How to make food tasty and appealing
- How to promote health
Microorganisms have been employed for these purposes since ancient times without exhausting the opportunities.
The 1st International Conference on Microbial Food and Feed Ingredients occured in 2018 and we published a special Thematic Issue of FEMS Microbiology Letters based on research presented at the conference.
At the MIFFI2020 you will hear about novel solutions to current challenges of climate change, reducing food waste, increasing the quality of proteins, using peptides as preservatives, texturants, and flavours. How to use microorganisms to increase safety and health in food and feed. You will learn about hundreds of new solutions and will get the opportunity to present your own research for the most interested and qualified audience.
