9th Middle East Cold Chain Food Safety Conference

Jan 21, 2019 - Jan 21, 2019 - in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. 3 days left

The previous edition of the Food Chain conference succeeded in bringing to the fore the urgent need for sweeping and pervasive best practices in the transportation and storage of thermally sensitive food products. This year the 9th edition has a self-mandated goal of largely seeking age-defining technological solutions for addressing issues related to how food is stored and handled. The Conference will take place at the Meydan Hotel in Dubai on the 21 January.

A palpable technological revolution is taking shape in the realm of food safety and quality assurance (FSQA). Food industry stakeholders are becoming more and more aware of the crucial nature of blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT) for accurate and fast monitoring of food. For instance, Dubai Municipality expects to track the temperature control and humidity of shipments delivered either by sea or air and other parameters like how many times the container was opened, through using IoT. 
The Conference will follow the traditional format of a healthy mix of presentations and panel discussions, interspersed by structured audience involvement. The conference will feature Government planners, policy-makers, and regulation and enforcement bodies, who will be invited to share updates on codes and standards; specialised refrigeration consultants; specialised refrigeration contractors; facility owners (hypermarkets, wholesalers, 3PL); and manufacturers and suppliers of refrigeration and airflow equipment.
