9th International Symposium on Deep-Frying
Higher Quality, Safer Products and Further Use
30-31 October 2017, Shanghai, China


Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the 9th international symposium on deep-fat frying. The international symposia on deep-fat frying organized through the DGF and Euro Fed Lipid have been held most of time in Europe and North America. This is the first time it is held in China and will be organized jointly by the Euro Fed Lipid and the Chinese Cereals and Oils Association.

There is a long tradition of deep frying in Asia’s cuisine. The oldest recording of frying process was found more than 3000 year old back in the Chinese texts. In recent decades, the rapid development of China’s economy has resulted in a dramatic increase in frying industry. We sincerely hope that this will be an opportunity for the experts and distinguished players in the area share their knowledge and experiences in Shanghai, China.

Furthermore, it will be a great chance for all of participants to get more understanding of the Chinese culinary culture, fast development and potential huge market.

Congress Dinner

to be announced


[updated 20.09.2016]

People Square Shanghai is the most populous city in China and the most populous city proper in the world.It is one of the four direct-controlled municipalities of China, with a population of more than 24 million as of 2014.It is a global financial center,and a transport hub with the world's busiest container port. Located in the Yangtze River Delta in East China, Shanghai sits on the south edge of the mouth of the Yangtze in the middle portion of the Chinese coast.

Shanghai For centuries a major administrative, shipping, and trading town, Shanghai grew in importance in the 19th century due to European recognition of its favorable port location and economic potential. The city was one of five forced open to foreign trade following the British victory over China in the First Opium War while the subsequent 1842 Treaty of Nanking and 1844 Treaty of Whampoa allowed the establishment of the Shanghai International Settlement and the French Concession. The city then flourished as a center of commerce between China and other parts of the world (predominantly Western countries), and became the primary financial hub of the Asia-Pacific region in the 1930s.

Temple However, with the Communist Party takeover of the mainland in 1949, trade was limited to socialist countries, and the city's global influence declined. In the 1990s, the economic reforms introduced by Deng Xiaoping resulted in an intense re-development of the city, aiding the return of finance and foreign investment to the city.

Shanghai is renowned for its Lujiazui skyline, museums and historic buildings, such as the ones along The Bund, the City God Temple and the Yu Garden, It has been described as the "showpiece" of the booming economy of mainland China.
