Interest in rice bran oil (RBO) has been growing from the health and nutritional aspects as well as cosmetics due mainly to its rich sources of commercially important bioactive phytochemicals with antioxidant activities and potential health benefits. In addition, Thailand has impeccable 5 companies who dedicate to production of crude and refined RBO and 300s small private entrepreneuers using cold-pressed technology for the RBO production. This private sector is seeking an opportunity to delve into a knowledge venue, where business matching and exchange of viewpoints are incorporated.

Naresuan University convenes “the 1st Thailand Conference on Fats and Oils: Roles of Rice Bran Oil and Its Products in the Changing Asia” to correspond with the increasing interest on health, nutritional and cosmetic aspects of RBO and its technology in the Southeast Asia region.  The conference will provide opportunity for participation of stakeholders to meet and share points of view and experiences as well as strengthen networking among RBO industries, government, doctors and scientists in related fields.  The conference will highlight significant developments in manufacturing, marketing, research and applications of RBO and its products by featuring a series of presentations and discussions in plenary, business meeting and informal gatherings, and exhibitions from industries and academia. We believe this conference will be a launching pad for Naresuan University to become a center of information of RBO technology in the region.
