Why the EHEDG World Congress 2018 should be in every Food & Drink Manufacturer's Diary

For the first time in its 29 year-history, EHEDG will be hosting its biennial World Congress in the UK. Being held at ExCeL London on 21 and 22 November in partnership with Food Matters Live, the Congress is an important event for the UK’s food and drink manufacturing community.

Best practice, knowledge sharing & case studies

EHEDG was established to facilitate the sharing of best practice and knowledge with regard to the application of hygienic engineering and design, and its impact upon hygiene, and food and drink safety.  The EHEDG World Congress 2018 gives the food and drinks industry a unique opportunity to learn about the very latest developments in hygienic engineering and design and its contribution to food safety, see examples of best practice, and review findings of new research undertaken by some of the world’s leading organisations working in the field of food technology.  

The Congress programme includes presentations from no fewer than 20 industry experts from organisations including the Fraunhofer Institute, Mondelez and numerous universities including the Universities of Cambridge, Bath and Lincoln.  

It will also include the Congress’ poster exhibition which summarises the latest research results, developments and trends in four key areas: building and equipment, cleaning, innovation and upgrading and renovation. Vetted by EHEDG’s technical committee, posters have been accepted from scientists, engineers, students, researchers and food industry experts as well as universities and research institutes.  

Discussion and debate

Debating sessions will be held throughout the conference on key topics affecting the food and drinks industry. Reflecting the latest EHEDG expertise, high-level experts will deliver an insight into hygienic design principles and provide real cases on a range of topics including emerging hazards, sustainability, compliance, traceability and manufacturing practices. Topics will fall under one of the four categories of 'Building Equipment and Design', 'Cleaning', 'Innovation' and 'Upgrading and Renovation'.

Networking opportunities

Run alongside Food Matters Live, the Congress will be attended by more than 300 food industry professionals from countries all over the world and this year, they’re all coming to the UK!

The Congress gives every delegate the opportunity to meet with influential contacts and decision makers, and also includes a Gala Dinner event where delegates can network more informally.
