31st October 2017
Organized by South East Asia Academy for Beverage Technology (SEA-ABT)
in collaboration with ISEKI-Food Association and GSICA
Venue: The Sukosol Hotel, Bangkok (TH)
An objective evaluation and the accurate validation of shelf-life of food beverages is a key factor to guarantee quality and safety along the distribution and commercialization and for the expected time. Date marking of product is mandatory and for some food categories the accomplishment of microbiological and safety criteria troughout product’s shelf-life according to national and international laws is required. Understanding product's quality attributes and how they change over time is key to satisfying customers and consumers as well as maintaining the business.
Due to the utmost and growing importance of these topics in the beverage sector this workshop is aimed to enhance knowledge and industrial applications of objective tools to improve quality and shelf-life of processed products.
The sessions of this workshop will outline the general aspects of shelf-life of food and beverages, the analysis of main factors implied in product degradation and decrease of safety along with the available strategies to improve quality and the tools available to help estimate, set, verify and extend the shelf-life of beverages. Experts will also present specific case studies and aspects of shelf-life of beverages that will end with an open-floor Q&A session where participants will have the opportunity to discuss their own challenges regarding shelf-life concepts and their application to products.
This workshop is being organised by the South East Asia Academy for Beverage Technology (SEA-ABT, www.sea-abt.eu), supported by the Erasmus+ Capacity Building project, in collaboration with the ISEKI-Food Association (www.iseki-food.net) and GSICA (Italian Scientific Association on Food Packaging, www.gsica.net/en).
