Description

2017 IFT-EFFoST International Nonthermal Processing Conference / Workshop and Short Course

Applications and Commercialization of Novel and Nonthermal Food Processing Technologies


For more information, see the official event website: http://bit.ly/2l87AeL


Program Synopsis: Today’s consumer wants it all: great taste, clean label, convenient, healthy and safe food. This workshop will explore the applications of nonthermal and novel technologies to meet all these demands. In this conference, researchers, subject matter experts, and stakeholders from government, academia, research institutions, food industry, food service groups and consumer/community groups will discuss the opportunities and issues associated with novel and nonthermal food processing technologies as well as the research findings at various stages of the development chain. Speakers and sponsors will showcase best practices in commercializing these technologies and how they address key issues of new food formulations with selection of the best fit processes and packaging for the marketplace. The conference will identify the gaps in assessing and meeting regulatory requirements for process validation and product labeling as well communicating the benefits of these technologies to both retail buyers and consumers to ensure marketplace acceptance.


Continuing with the tradition, the 2017 nonthermal processing conference / workshop will highlight the latest advancements, challenges and opportunities in the nonthermal processing field. The workshop and short course will cover the following technologies:

  • cold plasma
  • electrolyzed oxidizing water
  • high pressure carbon dioxide
  • high pressure homogenization
  • high pressure processing
  • irridation
  • membrane processing
  • microwave assisted thermal sterilization
  • ozone
  • pulsed electric field
  • pulsed light
  • ultrasound


What to expect: The workshop sessions will feature speakers from the government, academia, consumer groups, food service industry, extension services, and the food industry covering four important areas: 1) Overview of novel and nonthermal food processing technologies 2) Best Practices for process validation 3) Resources and approaches for commercializing these technologies into the global marketplace and 4) Presentations on case studies. Sponsor exhibits will be held during the program providing an informative and rich networking experience among attendees. Based on prior successful programs we expect up to 200 highly motivated registrants for this event.


Who will attend: Stakeholders from the industry, government, education, research institutions, consulting laboratories and service providers, community groups, and consumers are expected to attend.


Location: The short course will be held on May 23, 2017 at the Institute for Food Safety and Health, Moffett Campus, Bedford Park IL, just a few miles from the workshop venue. The workshop will be held on May 24 and 25, 2017 at the Chicago Marriot Southwest at Burr Ridge, Burr Ridge, IL, a location that is convenient to all major highways and airports serving the US.
