  1. 1. Supermarket food waste

    Author : Mattias Eriksson; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2015]

    Abstract : Food waste occurs along the entire food supply chain and gives rise to great financial losses and waste of natural resources. The retail stage of the supply chain contributes significant masses of waste. Causes of this waste need to be identified before potential waste reduction measures can be designed, tested and evaluated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Loss Minimisation in Dynamic Food Processes

    University dissertation from Department of Food Technology, Engineering and Nutrition, Lund University

    Author : Marcus Henningsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Livsmedelsteknik; Food and drink technology; Teknik; Technological sciences; CFD; dual plane ERT; ERT; waste minimisation; loss; milk; density; sensor fusion; multivariate calibration; electrical resistance tomography; dairy process; turbidity; conductivity;

    Abstract : The overall aim of the present work was to reduce losses during product changes or during rinsing in continuous food processing, with particular attention to dairy plants. The concept of sensor fusion of common process instruments was implemented as a tool to monitor the milk and fat concentrations in a dairy processing line. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bacteriological Hygiene in the Production of Pasteurised Milk

    University dissertation from Food Technology, Lund University

    Author : Åsa Eneroth; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1999]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Food and drink technology; RAPD; Bacillus cereus; Pseudomonas; Gram-negative; recontamination source; spoilage flora; phychrotrophs; recontamination; dairy hygiene; pasteurised milk; Livsmedelsteknik;

    Abstract : Critical contamination sites and sources for the Gram-negative psychrotrophs (GNP) of the taxa Pseudomonas, Enterobacteriaceae and Aeromonas, and the Gram-positive spore-forming (GPS) species Bacillus cereus, have been traced in the production line of pasteurised milk. Samples of raw and pasteurised milk from different sampling sites along the line were collected. READ MORE

  4. 4. Carrot Juice Processing - Effects on Various Quality Aspects

    University dissertation from Kerstin Tillman, Box 124, SE-221 00 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Charlotte Alklint; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; modified atmosphere; shelf-life; accelerated storage; isothermal calorimetry; pressing; expression method; colour; dietary fibre; carotene; composition; carrot pomace; carrot juice; carrot pulp; acidification; Food and drink technology; Livsmedelsteknik;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Färsk morotsjuice har ett högre förädlingsvärde än råa morötter. Färsk morotsjuice har en kort hållbarhet på cirka tre dagar vilket försvårar centraliserad industriell storproduktion. Olika processteg vid tillverkningen av morotsjuice påverkar såväl hållbarhet som näringsinnehåll och utseende. READ MORE

  5. 5. Reducing the environmental impact of food products logistics systems

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Kristina Liljestrand; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; food waste; food logistics; green logistics; food logistics systems; food supply chains; Transport’s impact on climate;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses how to reduce two types of environmental impact generated in logistics systems: transport’s impact on climate and food waste. In mitigating both these types of environmental impact, actors in food supply chains (FSC)—producers, wholesalers, and retailers—play important roles, for both causes of environmental impacts and improvement actions to moderate them emerge within their logistics systems.
