FoodLytica 2012 will take place on 31 October–2 November 2012 in New Delhi, India.

India is one of the most attractive markets globally for food and beverages, and it is vital to ensure the safety and quality of these products by domestic food processors.

This need can mainly be attributed to the rapidly changing dynamics of the Indian markets alongside stringent regulatory implications, an increasingly aware consumer base and extensive penetration of multinational corporations (MNCs).

Organized by Fi Conferences, FoodLytica 2012 is launching in New Delhi. The conference will be led by renowned experts in food safety and quality testing methodologies. The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) and the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) will be on hand to discuss regulatory standards and solutions to complicated issues of traceability, SOPs and SSOPS, chemical analysis, microbiological testing, nutrient profiling, validation of test methods, calibration of instruments and many more.

Some of the industry experts speaking at this conference include: Dr Srinivasa Bhat, Nestle; Dr Rahul Singh, Dabur; Mr K.V. Shashikumar, Unilever; Mr Shailesh Ghodekar, Marico; and Dr N.K. Kansara, BIS-CL, alongside experts from established research institutes like Dr Roy Betts, Campden BRIUK, Dr K.C. Gupta, Indian Institute of Toxicology Research (IITR); Dr Lalitha Gowda, Central Food Technology Research Institute (CFTRI); Dr R.R. Mallya, Institute of Food Technology and Management (IFTM); and Mr Udai Saxena, UKSOLUTIONS & AFSTI.

In addition there will be an exclusive technology presentation and instrument training on GC–MS–MS led by the Bruker Corporation, LC–MS–MS and IC-PMS led by Agilent Technologies; a focused day on food safety training led by Mr Tom Chestnut, Vice President, Food Safety Global Division, NSF International and a must-attend workshop on rapid microbiological testing led by Dr Roy Betts, HOD Microbiology, Campden BRI. There will also be a workshop on sampling techniques led by Dr Deepa Bhajekar, Managing Director, MicroChem Silliker with an additional site visit to TUV SUD South Asia.

FoodLytica 2012 will bring together the vice presidents, directors and heads of quality assurance, quality control, quality management, quality systems and operations, food safety, corporate quality assurance, food technology, analytical development, laboratory operation and senior food scientists from Indian food processing and beverage companies as well as international organizations and institutes to share their expertise on the latest methodologies for testing the safety and quality of food and beverage products.
