    “What started as a PhD Project on the freezing of sheep milk for processing efficiency quickly evolved into a novel means of potentially freezing a wide range of liquid food products.

    Hear Dr Jolin Morel, Callaghan Innovation, describe the three-year journey that resulted in several setbacks before finally discovering the unique behaviour of water crystals at around the freezing point that provided a new and efficient means of processing a wide range of liquid food products. Jolin’s presentation will explain how the new approach to freezing offers a wide range of benefits for food processors, particularly those of continuous freeze operations or as an important pre-processing step for freeze dry applications. “

    EHEDG Basic Course - Hygienic Design Principles


    Hygienic design of food manufacturing facilities, equipment and services is an essential, but often under-appreciated pre-requisite of HACCP-based food safety management programmes. Consequently, many food hygiene issues have hygienic design failings as a root cause, leading to high remedial and investigative costs, productivity losses, and in serious cases, product recalls. With proper knowledge and training these losses are entirely preventable.
