S-tec features and Zones
Japan's ONLY exhibition for Food Safety and Quality Control
Awareness of food safety is at an all-time high in Japan, following a spate of high-profile incidents that have shaken consumer confidence in the quality and safety of manufactured food. Partly as a result of this, but also because of tightened regulations and the need to develop more innovative products in the market, investments are being made in all of the following areas: analysis and inspection, safety and hygiene, technology of powdered/liquid food, environmental technology and packaging technology. These themes come together at S-tec Japan 2023.
S-tec Japan is the only event in Japan that focuses on this highly specialized segment and provides the best opportunity to meet production, quality control and R&D professionals from food manufacturing companies.
Participating companies present papers to introduce new products, reveal research results and announce new business developments.
Special exhibitor presentations featuring the latest trends in Japan are planned again for 2022, and are expected to include the following topics: rapid inspection method for voluntary hygiene inspection; contract inspection organization to ensure safety and quality; digitization promotion & AI technology for safety and quality improvement; countermeasures against foreign substances and offensive odors; food ingredient analysis technology.
In addition to the Exhibitor Presentations, there was a Special Conference that featured high-profile speakers who presented papers on the latest developments in ingredients technology, marketing trends and advances in food safety and quality control.
