In the UK for the first time, the EHEDG World Congress will be held at London ExCel on 21 and 22 November. This biennial event gives the food and drinks manufacturing sector an 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' poster exhibition summarises the latest research results, developments and trends in four key areas: building and equipment, cleaning, innovation and upgrading and renovation. Posters were invited from scientists, engineers, students, researchers and food industry experts as well as universities and research institutes.
Poster submissions are now being evaluated by the EHEDG World Congress Scientific Committee. Poster approvals are to be announced on 17 September.
Founded in 1989, EHEDG comprises a group of equipment manufacturers, research institutes, academic bodies and companies which work collaboratively to improve hygienic engineering and design standards in all aspects of food manufacture and drive the adoption of best practice.
In the UK and Ireland, EHEDG actively supports the food industry by working with organisations and academia to improve hygienic engineering and design standards, and disseminating knowledge and best practice guidance via the EHEDG Yearbook, EHEDG Technical Guidelines, training sessions and seminars. EHEDG UK and Ireland is also helping to facilitate the inclusion of hygienic design and engineering in further and higher education courses.
