The Korean Society of Food Science and Technology (KoSFoST) founded in 1968 is a voluntary, nonprofit scientific association in the field of food science and technology. The KoSFoST is endeavoring to elevate the level of food science and technology in theoretical and practical aspects by providing scientific and technical information to food industry, stimulating community education and training programs, and finally, making timely recommendations for the benefits of general public.

In 2018, at BEXCO, Busan in Korea, more than 2,000 professionals and students in the field of food science and technology, representing academia, governments, and industries will attend the 2018 KoSFoST International Symposium and Annual Meeting from June 27 to 29, 2018. In particular, the event will be held under the theme of "KoSFoST beyond 50 Years: Renew the New in Food Science" in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of KoSFoST. We invited world-renowned active scientists for plenary lectures; Dr. Hiroshi Umakoshi at Osaka University from Japan, Prof. Hyo-Sun Shin at Dongguk University from Korea, Prof. Chang Y. Lee at Cornell University from USA, and Dr. David Mills at UC Davis from USA.

The KoSFoST is devoted to the advancement and dissemination of knowledge in broad areas of food science and technology that include chemistry, biochemistry, processing, engineering, safety, packaging, microbiology, biotechnology, and other food related disciplines.

There are lots of opportunities of exposing yourself to the most current trends in new scientific findings, future technology developments, valuable food ingredients, and potential business impacts from this annual event. This annual event will be the largest one in food science and technology sector in Korea.
