Scientific Symposium: Advances in Food Processing: Challenges for the Future


Welcome to Advances in Sustainable Food Processing: Challenges for the Future, the international congress to be held in Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil from 5-7 November 2014.

Organized by Elsevier, the world's leading provider of science and health information and with the technical and scientific coordination of the Brazilian Institute of Food Technology (Instituto de Tecnologia de Alimentos, ITAL) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging (Fraunhofer IVV, Germany), this international congress will address the unique challenges faced by food processing industries and researchers.

The Congress provides a platform for industry and science to discuss and develop new concepts and technologies required to improve the sustainability of food processing. Next to the ecologic and social sustainability, which are highly relevant to assure global food supply and competitiveness in the food sector, the economy of innovative approaches is an important criterion with respect to their industrial implementation.

In the context of the Congress, leading representatives from food science and industry as well as experts from the private and public sectors will discuss ways of improving the sustainability of food processing by utilizing by-products along the food production chain as well as by increasing the added value of food production through new concepts and technologies.

Join the leading experts in food processing to share experiences and hear about the latest research, in a country at the forefront of new initiatives in sustainability.
