The Anuga FoodTec 2018 is approaching. As the world’s leading trade fair, from 20 to 23 March 2018 it will once again be the driving force for the international food and drink industry. At the same time, it is the only specialist trade fair in the world to cover all the aspects of food production: From process technology to filling and packaging techniques, from packaging materials to ingredients, to food safety and a wide range of other innovations for food and drink production.
In the current issue of AFT-Quarterly, we provide you with information about the newest development concerning scissor-type cutting rollers for packaging machines, which you can see in Cologne next spring. However, this is only one of the exciting topics from the innovative world of food technology that we have prepared for you.
We show you how new technologies contribute to effective and at the same time gentle production of olive oil. Furthermore, we present you with a software solution that helps food producers increase their operational efficiency through targeted implementation of their data. In other articles, we consider high-purity natural calcium carbonate as an ingredient for milk alternatives, as well as the broad range of activities of the food scientists at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna (BOKU).
We hope you will enjoy reading the selection of articles in this issue.
