  • The importance of nutritional education in the classroom to prevent childhood obesity
  • The carbon footprint of food products and the United Nations World Food Programme’s climate action, in the context of the 2030 agenda
  • Emerging risks in the food chain and strategies to identify these risks

In addition, the President of the Spanish Society of Arterial Hypertension will take a look at the essential guidelines in Cardiovascular Risk Prevention; experts in Microbiota will explore the evolving relationship between microorganisms and livings beings; and nutritional experts will discuss flexitarian diets and plant-based bioactive compounds.

This year will also see SPRIM & SEDCA launch the very first History of Food Conference, in which experts from across the world of food will reflect on what food was like at different stages throughout history and how this has impacted human evolution.

The conference will take place from 12-13 February 2020 at the Fundación Pablo IV Conference Centre in Madrid.
