Sustainability Concepts in Food Technology - Methodological Approaches and Case Studies
The food industry is of primary importance to several national economies around the world, thus being urged to address the impelling need for a sustainable production system. The course aims to illustrate sustainability issues in food technology with a holistic approach, starting from an overview of useful sources of information and reliable tools for assessing environmental impacts and then focusing on three complementary strategies towards sustainability: emerging food technologies, new packaging systems and tools to assess consumer attitude towards sustainable innovation. These themes will be covered by frontal lessons and a sensory & consumer science lab session, based on the case studies derived from the research projects conducted by the lecturers over the last few years. The ultimate goal is to support the PhD students that aspire to advance knowledge and applications in the perspective of sustainable food processing.
