AAOCS Program flyer

The program will present the latest science and industry updates relating to edible oil and ingredient supply, biotechnology, manufacture of fat-based products, nutritional research, oil analysis, latest developments with omega-3 oils, dairy lipids and other activities that support the industry. Furthermore planned workshops on spreads/margarine formulation and infant formula   lipids, led by international experts, are in planning to occur prior to the conference. We are also hoping to highlight “analysis of marine oils” in a hot topic session.

Other point of interest on the program will be;

  • The 2015 AAOCS award for scientific excellence in lipid research. This award is given to a  scientist from within the Australasian region that has made a significant research contribution towards fats and oils research. The award winner will give a presentation on their work on the Wednesday the 9th of September, followed by the opening mixer
  • The opening mixer (Wednesday the 9th). A chance to catch up with colleagues and friends or connect with other members of the lipid community in a social atmosphere.
  • Conference dinner at the Pier in Geelong
  • Workshop on the production of margarines, dairy blends and spreads. This short course is designed to assist participants in understanding the production of retail and bakery margarines, dairy blends and spreads.  The workshop will be co-ordinated by Rod Smith of CSIRO and Lucky Inturrisi (Cargill Australia).
  • Workshop on infant formula lipids. More details to be confirmed on the two workshops.
  • A hot topic session on the past and future of olive oils in Australasia
