Innovative Drying – Technologies and Analytics for High Quality, Sustainable Products
Food Innovation Gateways is part of the Teagasc Food Technology and Knowledge Transfer Strategy to support Irish food companies. The Gateways initiative promotes opportunities for the Irish food industry to engage with Teagasc research.
The subject of the next Gateways event is Innovative Drying – Technologies and Analytics for High Quality, Sustainable Products. This virtual event will present the latest concepts and innovations in drying technologies, as well as the capabilities of Teagasc in this area.
Novel food drying technologies have huge potential in food preservation, as the industry seeks to become more environmentally and economically sustainable. Such innovations offer possibilities for ingredient and product development, improved consistency of products and increased opportunities for export.
