Food Processing

Food Processing Course

Food processing is the set of methods and techniques used to transform raw ingredients into food for consumption by humans. In order to meet the sensory quality, safety, nutrition, health, economy, and novelty demanded of food products by consumers, it is necessary to improve food processing operations. Food processing has moved on from being a craft to a modern technology.

The program is composed of three fundamentals/learning accelerators:

  1. Live sessions to attend, learn new methods, tools tips and participate by practicing sharing and providing your insights
  2. Homework and tasks in between modules: where you will be requested to reflect your learnings, try them, and think where you could further apply in the future, including what can you change in your daily work.
  3. Individual or team project: Apply what you learn. Complete an assignment designed by your program director.

Food Processing

This course covers principles of operation and design of industrial equipment, used in the processing, storage, and packaging of foods. Food quality and food safety aspects, related to food processing equipment, are emphasized. Food processing equipment is classified and described according to the basic unit operations, including mechanical transport, mechanical processing and separations, heat transfer operations, evaporation, dehydration, thermal processing, etc.
The course provides solutions to farmers, consultants, directors of regional offices responsible for the agricultural sector and agriculture trainers who are doing the training for themselves or organizations, businesses who want to put all their management team through the training, so they all work in the same way, develop a common language, share common challenges and acquire similar same skills set.
