    Presentation Title- Frontiers of Sustainable Manufacturing of Food

     

    One of the most prominent challenges commonly acknowledged by modern manufacturing industries is ‘how to produce more with fewer resources?’ Nowhere is this more true than in the food sector due to the recent concerns regarding the long-term availability and security of food products. Furthermore, the impacts of climate change, growing global population, as well as changes in demand and dietary behaviours urgently demands a need to change the way we grow, manufacture and consume our food products. This talk introduces a number of key research challenges facing modern food manufacturers, including improved productivity using fewer resources, prevention and valorisation of food waste, improving the resilience of food supply chains, and increased flexible automation in food manufacturing.
