THE F&B INDUSTRY’S BIGGEST THREAT TO PROFITABILITY
The International Biofilm Summit is a worldwide conference with high-quality presentations focused on biofilm’s issues in the food and beverage industry. Since the first event in 2015, the IBS keeps the industry informed about biofilm’s latest news and innovative solutions. For the 2019 edition we joined our forces with CibusTec, one of the most innovative food technology exhibitions.
