Why are we undertaking this project?
Manufacturers need independent data on ways to effectively validate and understand the benefits new processing and preservation technologies have
of improving product quality. Understanding how processing or preservation technologies impact on the quality and shelf-life of products remains
an important area for manufacturers.
What are we doing as part of this project?
The focus for this project will be on emerging technologies for improving quality and value and will conduct feasibility studies on commercially
relevant emerging technologies. The project will inform members about additional new technologies through the new technologies bulletins,
feasibility studies and desk-based reviews.
Current status of the project
In the first year of this project a bulletin review will be conducted which focuses on X-ray
technology including a mini case study on what is believed to be the next generation of X-ray
detection systems. We will also do a feasibility study assessing the developments of solid-state
to understand if developments with this technology can bring enhanced benefits over traditional
