This series of webinars provides an overview of food preservation methods, and the associated processes used in the food industry. Note that as an introductory program, there is not time for in-depth review - the aim is to provide an introduction to the various options available - and identify important factors when considering applying these methods.
The program consists of six webinars, each of 90 min duration, to be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays (29 September, 1 October, & 6 October). There will be time for a Q&A session after each webinar to answer all of your questions.
Participants can register for any or multiple sessions. However it is recommended that all participants consider attending Session 1 as it provides a basis for understanding how the various processes achieve preservation.
For all participants —

Participants are welcome to attend from anywhere in the world (time may not be convenient in other locations).
