Speaker: Jasreen Sekhon

Title: Addressing challenges in fresh produce industry: shelf-life and co-product utilization

Post-harvest losses occur at various stages of the supply chain: on the field, handling, and storage, processing and packaging, distribution and consumption. Majority of post-harvest losses occur in fruit and vegetables (~60% of total losses) either due to spoilage or wastage. The food industry faces challenges of improving food safety; and of diverting food waste from the landfills. In this talk, Jasreen will present solutions to enhance the shelf life of fresh produce by disinfection with cold plasma; and co-product utilization by recovery of high-value bioactive compounds from fresh produce waste.

About the Speaker: Jasreen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Culinary Arts and Food Science at Drexel.Her research interests are value-added processing, recovery of functional components from food waste, and evaluating cold plasma for disinfection of fresh produce and its effect on produce quality.
