Personalization and consumer empowerment are important drivers in developing 3D food printing technologies for local on-demand, flexible food production. Furthermore, the digitalization of the food manufacturing chain is a strong technological driver. However, the potential of 3D food printing technology has not yet been fully realized within the agri-food industry. In this session, we will present the current state of the art of 3D food printing in terms of advances in 3D food printing equipment, processes, and applications. Each separate talk will focus on developments on 3D printing technologies, advances in food material properties for 3D food printing, and consumer acceptance of 3D food printed products from leading 3D food printing research institutes and pioneering organisations. This session will be valuable for food manufacturers, product developers, ingredient suppliers, and consumer groups who are interested in the application of 3D printing technologies within the food industry. Furthermore, this session will provide insights on 3D food printing as a growing field of study within the food sciences.
