Nanotechnology & Food: What’s on the Menu?

One of the newer industries that is currently deriving value from nanotechnologies is the food industry. There already is a fair amount of hype in this sector, with some rather bizarre claims on the size of rather loosely defined "nanofood market" stating it is already worth US$2.6 billion and rising to US$20.4 billion in 2010.

Nano4Food will represent the first real opportunity for the food sector's key players, leading suppliers and research community to meet, network and discuss the entire value chain of nanotechnology's commercial development.
