Physics is critically important to supporting the Food Manufacturing Sector in addressing the challenges it faces which include health and nutrition concerns, minimising waste and environmental impact, improving food security, responding to population growth and globalisation and improving productivity and developing and manufacturing successful products. A multidisciplinary approach is vital to solving these problems and physics has a crucial role to play.

The first annual meeting of the Physics in Food Manufacturing Group will address themes in which physics and academia–industry collaborations are likely to make the greatest impact on challenges currently facing food manufacturing. The meeting will bring together physicists from industry and academia to share progress and discuss challenges in the UK’s largest manufacturing sector, in which Physics plays an important role.

Invited speakers include:

Mr Tim Kelf, Bulher Group 
Dr Beccy Smith, Mondelez
Professor Tim Foster, University of Nottingham
Dr Bill Frith, Unilever R&D
Professor Mike Cates, University of Cambridge
