SAAFoST’s KwaZulu-Natal Branch is proud to host the 24th Biennial Congress and, in line with changing dynamics, in the wake of the world’s most challenging hurdle – the COVID-19 pandemic –  we are excited to bring you the first ever VIRTUAL SAAFoST Congress.

The theme of “Paradigm Shifts – Food in the 21st Century” represents the continuous dynamic changes with which the food industry is faced and challenged.  As much as we look forward, we must keep in mind the basics and learnings from the past. It is the ultimate paradox. Our knowledge and technology are advancing in leaps and bounds compared to the fundamental basics that form the foundation of food science and technology.

For Congress 2021, we will be sure to deliver on expectations and satisfy your appetite for everything relating to food safety, new technologies, sustainability and nutrition. And, considering the importance of growing South Africa’s small to medium enterprises, we are adding Entrepreneurship to the programme.
