The CommitteeWords and Greetings

Prof. Dr. Ir. Kadarsah Suryadi, DEA (Rector of ITB)

Researches and education in science and technology have became the forerunner of ITB, It includes food and health fields. ITB has been actively conducting researches and developing sciences and technology on food and health. At present, the field has grown rapidly with the growth of the related products industry. The effect of food on health is enormous. The type of food will determine the level of human health. Efforts to get high quality food can help maintain health, prevent disease and even help treat illness. The quality of public health is a leading indicator for all countries and goals that must be achieved in various ways by successful countries.

Finally, I hope that ITB can play more significant role in improving the quality of food and health products which in turn can contribute to achieve high public health indicators.


Prof. Dr. Ir. Benedictus Kombaitan, M.Sc. Kombaitan (Chairman P-100 ITB & PTTI)

The main strategy for improving public health status, aside from efforts to treat existing diseases, is to improve the quality of health to minimize disease outbreaks. In addition to the use of pharmaceutical products, food plays a major role in determining the quality of public health.

Recent developments in science and technology have broadened our knowledge pertaining to the correlation between the food we consume, our physiological functions, and food-borne illnesses.

With this consideration, the discussion was chosen as one of our International conference’s theme in road to one hundred years of ITB as Indonesian Higher Education in Engineering.


Dr. Elfahmi, S.Si., M.Si. (OC Chairman)

As part of the centennial commemoration of Indonesian Higher Education in Engineering, Bandung Institute of Technology under the coordination of Research Center of Biosciences and Biotechnology will held International Conference on Food and Health and Expo in Bandung, 26 – 28 September 2019.

The International Conference will present as one of the multi-disciplinary platform in the world of Food and Health science.
