The theme of the conference is “Current and Future Trends in Food Waste Management and its Valorization”. We are immensely proud to host VALORIZE – 2K18,  a great gathering, leading investigators from various  disciplines discuss the latest innovations and developments in the food processing and waste management strategies. I am extremely happy that the invited lectures of the conference will address issues of societal importance. We make every effort to ensure all attendees enjoy a truly memorable professional development experience. Our aspiration is to achieve a generation of individuals who do not merely observe and adapt to the rapidly changing reality, but are also active partners in shaping it. I thank all the invited speakers, chairpersons and delegates for their participation. I thank the University Authorities for their moral and financial support and all the funding agencies and other private companies for their financial assistance. I hope that this legacy of Valorize will continue with much more advances in forthcoming editions.I was fortunate to be involved in organizing this conference since its inception and I am confident that it would truly be a rewarding and enriching experience for all the participants. Best Wishes
