The 1st World Congress on Hygienic Engineering and Design took place from the 21-25th of September, 2011, in Ohrid, Macedonia.
The Macedonian Regional Section (along with Consulting and Training Center KEY) was awarded to be the host of this congress during a Conference organized by RUSFoST (from 4 – 5 October, 2010 in St. Petersburg, Russia).
This event was a Summit for Hygienic Design expertise, where over 230 participants from 31 countries worldwide exchanged their experiences, new developments and innovations in this area.
There were 42 presentations in two parallel sessions: 1) Hygienic Design and 2) Food Quality & Safety and Food Production & Processing.
Sponsor companies of the event: Van Meeuwen, Tensid Chemie Cmbh, Swisslion, Tetra Pak, Danfoss, Kozuvcanka, Scanjet, GEA, Serendipity, SKF, Skovin, and Makprogres, were able to present their latest products and services in the exhibition space.
The Congress revealed to be an excellent platform for networking and meetings, organizing a special “Brokerage Event” just for that purpose. Beside the work part of the Congress, there was a special social program organised where all of the participants had an opportunity to get familiar with the Macedonian tradition, culture and hospitality.
