International Congress - Green Food Tech 2021: Sustainable Processing for Tomorrow's Food, Virtual conference - Morning EST (GMT 5)

From 27th April to 29th April, 2021
Virtual conference

Sustainable processing for tomorrow's food

Today's consumers are increasingly demanding regarding the quality and origin of the food they eat. The demand for products manufactured in a more natural and environmentally friendly way is exploding. The food industry is therefore facing the urgent need to review its practices to respond to this new trend. 

In order to contribute to the development of new eco-responsible processing methods and innovative technologies, Green Food Tech (GFT) was created in 2018 to bring together experts around this issue for the first time.

The second edition of GFT will be held on May 5 and 6, 2020 in Quebec City.


Be part of the change. Take part in the only conference on the subject and:

  • Meet researchers and professionals in the food processing sector from Canada, the United States and Europe;
  • Attend unique conferences on the latest innovations in sustainable food technologies and bioprocesses;
  • Provoke business opportunities and research collaborations through networking opportunities;
  • Discover sustainable technologies, equipment and services.


For its second edition, Green Food Tech invites its participants to present their work and expertise on the following themes: 

•    Food systems design using multicriteria evaluation
•    Advances in green food technologies
•    Waste reduction and valorization of by-products
