High Technology Meets Food Processing

For the last six years, just finished 30 June, a major research programme called FIET (Food Industry Enabling Technologies) has been running across three New Zealand universities plus three research institutes. Massey University was host and MBIE the funder.

The Programme covered “new” food process technologies. Some are new inventions, some new to New Zealand, and two are modern incarnations of ancient food preservation processes. This interface between technology and food is a sweet spot for New Zealand industry: we have great raw materials and food is one thing the world will pay for if we can be smart enough to preserve and present it well. The talk will cover ten of the more interesting projects and their technologies.
