  • NZOZ 2024 Sensory and Consumer Science Symposium

The vision of the 18th NZOZ Sensory and Consumer Science Symposium is to create a vibrant, welcoming, and collaborative platform that unites the Sensory & Consumer Science Communities from Australia and New Zealand.  Our goal is to foster networking and idea sharing in order to keep the community up-to-date about the latest developments in this field, supporting students and professionals alike. The theme for the upcoming Symposium – Insights into Impact is to facilitate a quality discussion on how to apply consumer & sensory science in a manner which will deliver greater in-market impact for the commercial arena.

The Symposium is an excellent platform for Australian and New Zealand sensory and consumer researchers and professionals to:

  • Interact with international science leaders in this field
  • Learn about the latest developments in research methods
  • Network and exchange ideas

We will again enjoy a full program of speakers and presentations.  We encourage everyone to participate, including students.

The NZOZ Sensory and Consumer Science Symposium organising committee are proud to announce the keynote speakers for the 2024 Symposium.
