Project description

The general objective of IUPFOOD is to provide a multi-disciplinary and specialised professional

training in areas of food technology, with emphasis on postharvest and food preservation engineering

on the one hand and food science and technology on the other hand, to equip future personnel with

the necessary technical and managerial knowledge, skills, and attitudes, which they require to

successfully contribute to solving problems related to food security. The IUPFOOD programme

particularly focuses on developing countries where food security (delivering enough nutritious, high

quality safe foods) is a current and future major concern and key challenge.
