In September 2019, New Zealand will host the 10th OCEANIAFOODS conference in Auckland. This event will provide food composition experts from across the South Pacific with an opportunity to share knowledge on the generation, management and use of food composition data in the region.

OCEANIAFOODS is the pacific regional operation of INFOODS (the International Network of Food Data Systems), established under the auspices of the Food and Agricultural Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) in 1984.
