I am delighted to invite you to participate in the FFF Probiotics 2012, an International Symposium on Probiotics, Prebiotics and Health, to be held in Turku, Finland, on 11-13 June 2012. With this symposium we are celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Functional Foods Forum.

Turku is the oldest university town and the former capital of Finland. Turku is also well-known for its location in the beautiful archipelago. The time of the meeting, early June, is usually a pleasant  season in Southwest Finland with plenty of sunshine and about 20 hours of daylight. Turku, with its seven hills and the river Aurajoki, has a lively cultural life with several museums and art galleries, and it was elected one of the cultural capital cities of Europe for the year 2011.

I look forward to seeing you in Turku in June 2012!
