The 8th edition of the European Short-Course on “QUALITY AND SAFETY OF FRESH-CUT PRODUCE” will take place during next MACFRUT 2016, on 14-16 September 2016, within the exhibition premises at Fiera di Rimini.

Organized by the University of Foggia in cooperation with MACFRUT and DARe-Puglia, will include also Italian industry organizations AIIPA-IV gamma.

After last successful editions in Berlin, Antalya, and Cardiff we are very happy to bring the course back in Italy and we think that MACFRUT is the best possible location for our event.

The program is designed for individuals from the fresh and processed fruit and vegetable industry and will be of interest for food scientists, food engineers, quality assurance personnel and new product development staff. The course also is valuable to representatives from R&D, students, Institutions, food companies, and suppliers (packaging, plant materials, equipments). 

Topics will include issues relating to pre-harvest effects on post-harvest quality, handling considerations for a range of fresh cut produce and issues of water sanitation, packaging, and layout of unit operations, including water management.

Lectures will be alternated with discussion sessions in order to increase the degree of interaction among participants. In addition, chance of networking will be increased through the organization of posters during lunch and coffee breaks and a dedicated evening event.
