» The Ninth Annual Chapman Phytosanitary Irradiation Forum

 

Attendees at a Irradiation forum

We are excited to welcome you to Melbourne for the Ninth Annual Chapman Phytosanitary Irradiation Forum in 2020. Use of phytosanitary irradiation, in terms of volume and range of products, has grown steadily in our host country, Australia. Melbourne will also be home to Steritech's new one-of-its-kind facility specifically designed to treat fresh produce

Agenda, registration, accommodations and other details can be found at chapmanpiforum.com.

"It was indeed a pleasure for me to attend the 6th Irradiation Forum. It has been very informative for me and I had the opportunity of meeting, discussing and learning from the other participant's experience with irradiation as a phytosanitary treatment. This Forum was particularly important for me given that the NPPO of Mauritius is also envisaging the setting up of an irradiation facility for phytosanitary treatment. Hope that I will have the opportunity of participating in future Forums."

"Thank you very much, Anu, for inviting me to speak at the Forum – it was an excellent opportunity for me to learn more about the Industry concerns and new technologies, and to interact face-to-face with our Stakeholders.  I think you did a superb job arranging for and carrying out this forum – very smooth and well-organized!

Thanks again and I hope to stay in touch and continue to be involved with irradiation technology for phyto treatments."
