IFU Technical Webinars 2020

The IFU Technical Webinars are the virtual equivalents for the IFU Technical Workshop in 2020, which had to be cancelled as a live event due to the Corona crisis. The IFU Technical Workshop is the meeting point for the national and international juice industry, including R&D, quality, laboratories, suppliers, universities, etc. By holding virtual events rather than a live-event, we are looking forward to welcome even more participants to the webinars!

When: Webinar on Oct 15
starting at 4 pm CET / 3 pm UK time
Where: Zoom Webinar
Contact: Maria Schlaffer
