Nanotechnologies in the Food Industry, a Fast Growing Zero Trillion Dollar Market
According to Cientifica CEO Tim Harper "While there is so little on the supermarket shelf that you can buy today, a quick glance at the ingredients list on any processed food will show you the impact that chemistry has already had on the food industry. In every market, from textiles to plastics, where chemistry goes, nanotech is never far behind, leading to rapid adoption and high growth opportunities."
Nanotechnology in the Food Industry takes a realistic look at both the current and future applications of nanotechnologies in the food industry, and is followed by the Second Annual Nano4Food 2006 Conference (www.nanofood.info) to be held in Atlanta, GA at the GTRI Conference Center on October 12-13, 2006.
The report predicts that applications of nanotechnologies will be a 5.8 billion dollar market by 2012, with smart packaging and food safety showing the highest growth rates, while the largest markets being active packaging and food additives. For more information www.cientifica.com.
Just as the report examines commercial realities of nanotechnologies in the food industry, the Nano4Food 2006 Conference uniquely brings together both food industry and nanotechnology companies to discuss the real impact of nanotechnologies in the food industry rather than pure research or speculation.
