Title: The Role of Food Engineering in a Sustainable Food Supply

As the human population of the world approaches 9 billion, and the resources to produce and distribute adequate food are reduced, the role of engineering requires special consideration. In general, the focus of engineering is on improved efficiency of processes or reducing the resources required to create the desired outcome. The challenge for food engineering is to improve the efficiency of processes needed convert raw food materials or ingredients into safe, high quality and nutrition foods, and to distribute those foods to the consumers.

This presentation will focus on process analysis and design, as tools of food engineering, to be used to reduce energy, water and waste associated with all processes associated with the food supply chain from the point of production until the food is ready for consumption. ...
