Food drying technology

Food drying technology short course

Drying is one of the most common operations in food and feed production but is often poorly understood and inefficient. This short course in drying technology, presented in collaboration with Food Stream, combines the practical perspective of experienced industry professionals with the in-depth technical knowledge of drying processes.

Date: 17-18 November 2016
Location:
CSIRO's food innovation centre, 39 Kessels Road, Coopers Plains, Qld 4108
Date:
7-8 March 2017
Location:
CSIRO's food innovation centre, 671 Sneydes Road, Werribee Vic 3030

High pressure processing workshop

Considering using this breakthrough technology to develop new products?

High pressure processing (HPP) is used routinely in approximately 200 industrial units worldwide mainly for cold pasteurisation of smallgoods, meals, beverages and a variety of produce. HPP can not only extend shelf-life, but can also reduce reliance on preservatives and inactivate foodborne pathogens while maintaining colour, flavour and fresh-like characteristics.

CSIRO are world leaders in the development and implementation of HPP technology across a range of product categories such as meat, poultry, seafood, fruit and vegetable products, meal solutions, dips and sauces. This workshop, hosted by CSIRO, provides the ideal opportunity for companies to learn how HPP could add value to their business and enhance the quality, shelf-life, and safety of their products.

You will be able to see a demonstration of the CSIRO food innovation centre's HPP plant, the only one of its kind in Australia.

Date: 24 November 2016
Location:
CSIRO's food innovation centre, 671 Sneydes Road, Werribee Vic 3030
