This all-day conference is being organised in conjunction with the IFU & SGF. The IFU (www.ifu-fruitjuice.com) is the dedicated international fruit & vegetable juice association representing the interests of the world-wide juice community including the fields of legislation; science & technology; methods of analysis; and promoting the benefits of fruit juice. The SGF (www.sgf.org) is an independent industrial association focussing on all matters concerning quality, safety, authenticity and sustainability, especially in terms of self-control platforms. This conference is therefore part of the outreach programmes

We have already confirmed overseas & local speakers from both the IFU & SGF as well as other key role-players. More detail of the programme, topics and speakers will follow shortly.

We are excitedly preparing for the conference to ensure that you have a valuable and enjoyable experience.
