In the new issue of AFT-Quarterly we aim to take you along on a foray through current issues affecting the food industry. From food safety to Industry 4.0, we want to show you with the help of topical examples what solutions and products are being offered by leading companies.
In this way you will find out, for instance, how intelligent use of food gases in processing and packaging makes a major contribution to the quality of meat and sausage products. We are also presenting an innovative method for testing the tightness of food packagings, a process with numerous advantages over conventional methods.
Other articles are designed to inform you about the new EFSA database OpenFoodTox, the EU research project
INNO-4-AGRIFOOD, and about research findings and options for prevention concerning the subject of food fraud.
You will encounter many of these themes again at Anuga FoodTec, being held in Cologne from 20 to 23 March 2018.
Don’t forget to save this date in your diary right now.
We hope you find lots to interest you and enjoy reading this issue.
