The first International Workshop on Food Supply Chain – IWFSC will be held on June 26 – July 1 , 2011 in Bertinoro (FC) and Orvieto (TR), Italy.

This workshop will host the annual meeting of the International Wine Supply Chain Council (http://www.scl.gatech.edu/wscc/). Participants to the workshop are researchers and professionals from different countries such as Australia, Mexico, United States, Italy, etc. First results of the international project on traceability of food products, “Food Supply Chain – Bologna University” , will be illustrated. Participants and research contributions are expected from academics, food producers, logistic providers, food associations, public institutions, etc.

The Workshop belongs to the schedule of the project Food Supply Chain which started in 2010 by the University of Bologna – Department of Industrial Engineering (DIEM) and Food Science – and in collaboration with several international research institutions. The aim of the project is to study all problems arising from the transport of food products in order to protect and enhance the export of local foods, and identify critical issues & new opportunities for the distribution chain.

During the workshop in Bertinoro an international conference on food supply chain topics (see the “Call for papers” section and “Topics of conference” section in the website) is organized: contributions are welcome from university, industry and research institutions. Submitted papers will be reviewed for merit and contents. Also in-progress research will be accepted.

The workshop will include a public meeting (free of charge) for producers, distribution logistics, associations and public bodies and other stakeholders through free registration on this website.

The workshop will continue with tours and other meetings in Orvieto thanks to the support of “Cittaslow” (www.cittaslow.org).
