The group has a range of interests related to alcoholic beverages and fermented non-alcoholic products including
improving utilisation, new hop varieties and flavours, feed safety, legislation, production methods, environmental impact, product safety,
chemical and microbiological contaminants, flavour stability and consumer trends and attitudes. Topics relating to cider, wine and spirits
are also of interest to this group. The aim of this MIG is to provide a collaborative environment in which challenges and solutions can be
discussed. It is also an ideal forum for networking, horizon-scanning, identifying gaps in knowledge and addressing them, as well as keeping
up to date with legislation, latest research, and other upcoming topics.
