Microbial spoilers in food - June 28th - 29th & 30th 2017

Scientific Programme

Previous edition, SPOILERS2013 international scientific symposium attracted 154 participants from 24 countries, with a large participation of the food & diagnostics industries (30% of participants) and contributions from leading academic and technical organizations on the developed topics; all conferences highlighted the widespread interests related to "Microbial Spoilers in Food".
