Abstracts of presentations given during the conference


XXIth century in Poland and other European countries has been marked by a clear division of the food market. On the one hand, we are surrounded by the ubiquitous supply of mass-produced standardised and unified global food. On the other, however, we may observe a growing interest of consumers and producers in traditional food, which stands out with its distinctive quality. Such phenomenon results from the increased awareness of the society, paying more attention to the prohealth functions of the food consumed.
Our conference will provide a forum for the exchange of opinion and expertise on the challenges and future prospects for traditional food. Bringing together specialists in different fields, we wish to discuss the possibilities of increasing the attractiveness of traditional food products through the transfer of innovation and research results.
The meeting is dedicated to i.a. scientists conducting research focused on developing and improving traditional food, as well as on introducing products of this type into a human diet. Entrepreneurs, local authorities, social organisations and other entities professionally related to traditional food will also considerably benefit from participation in this conference.

Appreciating a wide and appealing range of Polish traditional foods, we invite the producers to introduce their products during our conference.
