The online workshop presents results of the transnational project SusOrgPlus. Experts from research and industry will discuss about smart and low energy input processing chains, natural food additives and colourants, and supportive material for a code of practice to increase sustainability and consumer acceptance of organic food stuffs.
15 April 2021, 3 - 5 pm (CEST)
The workshop addresses organic food producers and processors, organic fresh produce associations, on-farm processors and researchers.
On the agenda are the final results of the transnational project SusOrgPlus...
- Dynamics of food processing
- Non-invasive real-time measurement
- Resource efficiency and energy efficiency in drying
- Reduction of losses
- Smart adaption of processes
- Precise specification of end product quality
- Extend control systems starting from the product
- Drying with CO2 neutral heat pump and control of the dryer

The project SusOrgPlus aimed at the development of smart and low energy input processing chains, natural food additives and colourants, and supportive material for a code of practice to increase sustainability and consumer acceptance of organic food stuffs. The transnational project was funded via the ERA-net CORE Organic Cofund.
