Packaged 2018 Programme

"Agricultural by-products for shelf life extension"– (day 2 - June 26) 13.55-14.30.

Agricultural by-products for shelf life extension

  • Sustainability and food security are global priorities and innovations in packaging technology can make a significant contribution the achievement of these goals.
  • Processing of agricultural by-products can provide new materials which may have applications in areas as food ingredients or in packaging.
  • Initial work has demonstrated that a range of novel materials including nanofibers can be produced from agricultural by-products.
  • The properties of these new materials such as anti-microbial activity and anti-oxidant capacity will be evaluated and their potential application for shelf life extension.
  • Comparisons with other natural nanomaterials derived from agricultural waste will be made.
  • Future research strategies and applications to the packaging of food or other materials will be discussed

Shelf Life & Stability Testing

Shelf Life & Stability Testing

Deterioration due to microbial activity can be a major threat to the safety of food and has an impact on the quality, so strict regulations and guidelines need to be adhered to.
