About BFDG

The British Feeding and Drinking Group is is an international and multi-disciplinary gathering of scientists whose research examines all aspects of appetite, eating and drinking. The annual conference welcomes a wide range of academic, clinical and industry-based scientists, including those working in psychology, physiology, medicine, nutrition, food science and related disciplines.
