Greater Melbourne is home to a burgeoning food sector. It is Australia’s largest exporter of food products with exports soaring to $12 billion in 2014-2015. The main food export items include dairy ($2.3 billion), cereal ($2 billion), beef ($1.3 billion), sheep products ($2.5 billion), and fruits and nuts ($1.2 billion). The region supplies around 85% of Australia’s dairy exports to countries such as China, Japan, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines and Malaysia.

Manufacturers including Cargill, Chobani, Warrnambool Cheese and Butter, Fonterra, Burra Foods, and Nestle, make Greater Melbourne the centre of food processing in Australia.

Innovation in food manufacture is supported by cutting-edge agri-food research facilities, including the Centre for AgriBioscience (AgriBio), CSIRO, DairyBio, Food Innovation Australia Limited (FIAL), and RMIT University’s Food Research and Innovation Centre.

This is the second time that the IHC has been held in Melbourne, the first was the 7th conference in 2004.

The event is sponsored by two prestigious Elsevier journals: Food Hydrocolloids, and Bioactive Carbohydrates and Dietary Fibre.

A dedicated special issue will be published from oral presentations and posters from the conference in Food Hydrocolloids and Bioactive Carbohydrates and Dietary Fibre.

The deadline for submission to both of these special issues will be 31 May 2020 and submissions will undergo a peer review process.
