GREEN FOOD TECH 2020: Sustainable processing for tomorrow's food

19th March, 2020
Château Laurier Québec

Sustainable transformation 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.
