Photonic Technologies for Food & Drink and Agriculture Industries

Photonics technologies have wide application in food processing and help improve hygiene and food security, reduce food waste and enhance the information received by the consumer. Usually they are used for:

  • Real time monitoring of food quality critical parameters
  • Detection of food chemical composition
  • Detection of pathogen bacteria, residues, and other contaminants in food matrices
  • Real time measurement of fruit/produce maturity.

If you are interested in the UK's largest manufacturing sector, Food & Drink industry please join Free Workshop: Photonic Technologies for Food & Drink and Agriculture Industries

Date: 8 October 2020

Timings: 10am-12pm

This interactive webinar is hosted by Aston University as part of the Enabling Technologies & Innovation Competences Challenge Project. ETICC project is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and offers FREE support and expertise in photonics, materials and computer science/AI to 50 small and medium businesses from Black Country and Greater Birmingham & Solihull areas; this support is available until the end of July 2021

The workshop will cover methods for:

  • Mid-IR Spectroscopy for Detection of Food Chemical Composition
  • Testing food, beverages and packaging
  • Extraction and Optical Spectroscopic Sensing of Natural Food Pigments
  • Application of Photonic Sensors in Food Industry
