Quality validation for heat processed foods: improving product quality, reducing process energy and cost


Building on the Campden BRI’s long-standing and unrivalled reputation for research into thermal processing, this MIG addresses the many issues relating to heat processing of foods, including microwave heating and aseptic technology as described in the Principal Areas of Interest. The group comprises food contact material manufacturers and converters, as well as food processors and retailers.


Particular topics of discussion have included developments in retortable packaging, improved control of the total heating process and water treatment. In addition, the MIG helped guide the member-subscription funded project on Pasteurisation: principles, processes and guidelines.
