IFST Spring Conference 2019 (SC19): 'Nutritional Science over Gut Feel'


Full details

IFST’s 2019 Spring Conference (SC19) focuses on the subject of nutrition. In particular, the very latest scientific and technological research and innovation that is informing our thinking in tackling some of the biggest nutritional and health challenges including, of course, obesity.
