Welcome to ICoFF2019/ISNFF2019

 We are delighted to invite you to the 7th International Conference on Food Factors(ICoFF2019) and the 12th International Conference and Exhibition on Nutraceuticals and Functional Foods (ISNFF2019).
 With the mission of promoting research into all aspects of basic and applied Food and Nutritional Science, ICoFF held its first conference in 1995 and has continued to hold every four years. ICoFF is one of the largest international conferences for researchers, scientists, professors and students in the field of food factors and their health-promoting effects. ISNFF, founded in 2007, has been focusing on the research and development on materials that can be used as functional foods.
 For ICoFF2019/ISNFF2019, we have adopted the theme, “Food Factor Science from Molecular to Human Studies”. The conferences will offer opportunities to exchange scientific ideas and create networks between people from academia, industry and regulatory authorities, as well as between young and established scientists and professionals.
 The organizing committee, mainly comprising members of the Japanese Society for Food Factors (JSoFF), is putting its utmost efforts into preparing for the conferences, which will be held at the Kobe Convention Center and the nearby Kobe Portopia Hotel on Port Island, Kobe. Other academic societies such as Japanese Society of Polyphenols, the International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST) Japan, and Japanese Society of Catechinology and sponsor companies will agree to cooperate on ICoFF2019/ISNFF2019.
 We welcome your participation in ICoFF2019/ISNFF2019 and very much look forward to welcoming all of you to our wonderful city.
