3D Printing Technology for Value-Added Red Meat

Melbourne – On May 02, 2017, the 3D Food Printing Conference Asia-Pacific will take place at Monash University, Food Innovation Centre, Melbourne, Australia.

3D food printing will be the focus of a major conference to be held in Australia in May – and in particular the opportunities this technology has for the red-meat sector.

The 3D Food Printing Conference Asia-Pacific, supported by Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) and organised by Jakajima, will bring expert speakers in the 3D printing field together to discuss the future potential of this technology.

The Asia-Pacific Conference follows a similar successful event organised by Jakajima in Europe in 2016, which heard about the existing uses of 3D technology, as well as what future opportunities may exist.

As with every 3D printing application, there is a lot of hype around 3D food printing. Not only are large companies utilising the technology, but many start-ups are introducing 3D Food printers as part of their set-ups. Last year’s conference in Europe heard about how people can already now eat 3D printed dinners in restaurants.
