What, When, Where: The 3D Food Printing Conference Asia-Pacific Edition, May 02, 2017, Monash University, New Horizons Building (4th floor), Melbourne, Australia
The conference is supported by Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA).
Scope: As with every 3D printing application, there is a lot of hype going on with 3D Food printing. Statements like ‘a 3D Food Printer in every home in 2 years time’ can be heard all the time. Also many start-ups introduce 3D Food printers and people can already now eat 3D printed dinners in restaurants, as it happened during the 2016 European edition of the 3D Food Printing Conference. The reality is that a lot of research and development needs to be done. The promises however are huge, both for professional and consumer markets.
For red meat, 3D printing represents an exciting opportunity to add value to current secondary cuts, trims and by products by developing “meat ink”. Furthermore, in the aged care sector there is a demand for food that is easier to chew and 3D printing provides an opportunity for the red meat industry to offer high protein meals that can be presented in various shapes and sizes, more appetizing that the classical pureed food.
There is a need for creation new business models to meet the demands of different markets who want personalized approaches to nutrients or textures, rather than the current whole muscle product.
The 3D Food Printing Conference will tackle all aspects of these new market opportunities and challenges.
