High pressure processing for seafood and meat products

Product and Technology Introduction, Demonstration and Innovation Opportunities

Internationally, processing and product innovation in the seafood and meat industry has been enabled through High Pressure Processing. In Australia the recent emergence of this technology in the food industry has been initiated by SME companies. Local regional opportunity has been commercially recognised for some meat products, with potential to expand to other meat and seafood products. This workshop is designed for local food companies to better understand and evaluate the potential of this technology for their business operations and products. Furthermore, facilitate local innovation for new products by bringing relevant stakeholders together.

Speaker on the day include: Roman Buckow, Research Group Leader for Process Engineering Science, CSIRO; Rod Smith, Operations Manager of Food Processing Centre, CSIRO; Dean Russel, Managing Director, Moira Mac's Poultry & Fine Foods Pty Ltd.
