I hope that you and your loved ones are healthy and staying safe.

Considering the latest developments and vaccination efforts all around the world, now we are delighted to invite you to the 13th International Conference and Exhibition on Nutraceuticals and Functional Foods (ISNFF2021) that was decided to be postponed in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions before. The conference will be held in hybrid format between 17-20 October 2021 and the venue of the conference is unchanged.

We look forward to hearing your latest findings and developments, to meet old friends and to make new ones in the meeting, in person or virtually in our congress. 

Please keep in touch with us directly or through our newsletters and affiliated publications, the Journal of Food Bioactives <isnff-jfb.com> and the journal of Food Production, Processing and Nutrition <fppn.biomedcentral.com>.
