International Conference on Food Production and Preservation About ConferenceWe feel proud and honored in inviting the contributors across the globe to its premier International Conference on Food Production and Preservation (Food Production 2018) to be held during October 17-18, 2017 Ottawa, Canada. Food Production Conference 2018 is the premier event that brings together a unique and International mix of experts, researchers and decision makers both from academia and industry across the globe to exchange their knowledge, experience and research innovations to build a world Food industrialists and entrepreneurs meet. Food Production in Canada begins with the Fishing and Farming, Hunting and Gathering; however it is much more than just agriculture and fisheries. After agricultural production, there are various routes to enter the value chain it includes wholesalers, processing units, packaging and repackaging plants, and market outlets for selling or re-selling. There are a number of additional services such as transportation, retail, or advertising, which are required while passing through the value chain Food industry is the largest manufacturing sector in the Canada in terms of turnover, value added, and employment. Organic retail sales, but information is available from industry sources. Canada sales of organic products were an estimated 27.4 billion in 2012 over 4 per cent of total food sales and will reach an estimated 40 billion in 2014. For decades, a growing body of evidence points to food as the key to improving the health of our bodies, as well as the health of our communities and our environment. Gardening, hunting, fishing and harvesting wild foods such as mushrooms, nuts, and berries are activities carried out by many Canadians. The type, magnitude and spatial distribution of these activities are to understand the impact of food production and services on the environment; our food choices are informed consciously or not by policy, society, economics, and marketing and, of course, personal choice. Increasingly, food is being touted as a method of prevention, and a prescription for better health. The study of Canadian food system not only includes the production, but also undertakes the processes and activities carried out towards the food value chain, and the exports. The annual Food Production Conference continues to be the premier environmental event for the food industry, bringing together senior environmental managers from food and beverage companies to share their experiences with sustainable practices, environmental compliance and new technologies and approaches. The value chain analysis includes the activities of producers and industries in the primary, secondary and far-secondary market settings, with sectors of the economy related to food production and distribution. This Food conference is open to those employed by a food or beverage processing company, food and beverage industry vendors, and consultant partners and supporting trade associations. This food event is organized to foster information exchange and networking. The associated exhibition will run in parallel with the conference and definitely it will offer you the chance to get updated information from companies active in your area of interests. This is an open event, we welcome and invite you to participate in this auspicious Food Production conference to make event as the best event in Ottawa, Canada About City:- Ottawa lies in the Province of Ontario, is the capital of Canada, This city is a remarkably wonderful place Ottawa is cosmopolitan, with exhibition halls, displays, performing expressions and celebrations, yet despite everything it has the vibe of a residential area and is moderately reasonable. An urban fixate on the edge of nature where you can appreciate nature settled on the banks of the lofty Ottawa, Rideau and Gatineau Rivers. A flourishing worldwide innovation and business focus and a world class tourism and tradition goal, Ottawa is rich in culture and legacy with its numerous national establishments, parklands, conduits and memorable design. It is home to an extensive number of remote international safe havens and is a perceived place for the two scholastics and expert preparing. The city offers an open and inviting condition to societies from simply outside your inn room, and close-by in the encompassing field far and wide, giving administrations in English, French, and a large group of different dialects. The city's inhabitants appreciate a fortunate personal satisfaction that is perceived far and wide. Ottawa's four seasons give a thrilling canvas of shading, excellence, and recreational movement. Spring, summer, fall and winter are invited, and the changing seasons are an essential piece of living in our city. In Ottawa, fall months bring cool, lovely temperatures, especially in September and October. It's the best season to get the staggering pre-winter leaves in eastern Canada, and appreciate long climbs in the fresh air. The Parliament of Canada commands the Ottawa scene, with its Gothic-restoration towers ascending high from Parliament Hill and neglecting the Ottawa River. The National Gallery's engineering is a cutting edge impression of the Parliament structures, with glass towers remaining in for Gothic ones. It houses generally crafted by Canadian specialists and is the biggest accumulation of Canadian workmanship on the planet. It likewise incorporates work by European and American specialists. There's a simple cosmopolitan vibe here, and Ottawa is known for being both inviting and walkable. Investigate the particular nearby neighborhoods, including the noteworthy By Ward Market: by day this territory brags a clamoring ranchers' market and chic shops, by night it murmurs with movement at the Pubs, bars, and dance club. Scientific sessions Session on: Food Production The process of Food production develops products with longer shelf lives than raw food ingredients. The transformation of ingredients into finished food products is called as Food Production. The food production process includes the processing of raw materials like fruits, vegetables and grains in their harvested forms. Meat after the butchering is processed into types of food products that are available for the consumers. Food manufacturing firms convert raw food products into complete and marketable food items. The methodologies in Food production varies from minimal processing such as cleaning and packaging to the addition of additives, ingredients, and flavoring as well. Food production can be classified into various types which include: selection, cultivation, harvesting, crop management, crop production, Preservation, Pasteurizing, Baking, Pudding, Carving, Fermenting, Butchers, Pickling, Candy making. Methods of Food Production:- · Fermenting at brewing industries. · Removal of unwanted outer layers, such as peeling and skinning. · Chopping or slicing of vegetables. · Grinding and marinating. · Curing food. · Fruit juice processing. · Food fermentation. · Emulsification. · Boiling, broiling, frying, steaming or grilling and mixing. · Gasification of soft drinks. · Pasteurization. · Packaging and food preserving by vacuum packs. Session on: Wine Production The wine-making process can be divided into four distinct steps: Harvesting and crushing grapes; Fermenting must, Ageing the wine and Packaging. The process of wine production remained the same throughout the ages, but new technology and machinery have brought increase in the output of wine. While the manufacturing process is highly automated in medium- to large-sized wineries, small wineries still use hand operated presses and store wine in musty wine cellars. The procedures in creating wine are often times dictated by the grape and the amount and type of wine being produced such advances enhanced the quality of wine. These advances include a variety of mechanical harvesters, grape crushers, temperature-controlled tanks, and centrifuges. Recipes for certain types of wine require the winemaker to monitor and regulate the amount of yeast, the fermentation process, and other steps of the process. A universal factor in the production of fine wine is timing. This includes picking grapes at the right time, removing the must at the right time, monitoring and regulating fermentation, and storing the wine long enough. · Viticulture · Harvesting · Crushing · Fermentation · Draining · Pressing · Mixing · Clarification · Ageing · Bottling Session on: Food Preservation Techniques Food preservation is one of the oldest technologies used by human beings, which increases the shelf life of food along with retaining the nutritional value. Preservation can also act as an alternative to refrigeration and cold storage. Few preservation techniques may also destroy the enzymes naturally found in a food that cause it to spoil or discolor quickly. Following are few of the Modern-day food preservation methods, CANNING: - Canning is the process of applying heat to food that’s sealed in a jar, in order to destroy any microorganisms that can cause food spoilage. Canning is a popular way of preserving fruits, vegetables and meat products. FREEZING: Properly packaging food in freezer paper or freezer containers prevents any deterioration in its quality. Freezing changes the texture of most fruits and some vegetables, but meats and fish fair well. DRYING: - Exposing the food to a temperature that’s high enough to remove the moisture. An electric dehydrator is the best and most efficient unit for drying, or dehydrating, food Session on: Food Structure, Flavor and Quality:- The structure of food influences texture and the physical properties of food such as color, structure, properties, composition, and many methods for objective characterization of food. These are useful for applications such as new product development, benchmarking, reformulation and specification. Food structure is mainly defined in the context of its relationship with molecular composition, processing and macroscopic properties. Reducing the salts and sugar in raw and processed foods remains a challenge due to its significance in influencing the texture. In addition they add on to the customization with giving a wanted taste, quality, improving flavor, deciding the conduct of organizing fixings, and guaranteeing microbiological security. The challenge within the processing industry is to create more beneficial end-products, by adjusting and reducing the salt, sugar, fat and calorie from the raw or primary food product while keeping up tangible quality and customer acknowledgment. Session on: Food Waste Management Issues related to Food waste and its management is now thought to be a noteworthy and undermining factor for supportable advancement and Food Waste administration frameworks. Because of inadequate administration frameworks, the Food Waste is the cause of concern due to its social, ecological, environmental and economic impacts. Ecological impacts include food waste recycling, acidification, eutrophication, and eco-toxicity of water bodies’ especially fresh water. The distinctive concept of Food Waste showed that is can have critical impacts at pay level, populace development, and open cooperation in Food Waste administration frameworks. Additionally these administration frameworks have also intended to give an outline of reusing exercises, related controls, and innovations in current preventive measures in Food Waste management, by following some contextual investigations. Session on: Industrial Application of Food Technology Food technology is the application of food science to the selection, Preservation, Processing, Packaging, distribution, and use of safe food. Food processing is the treatment of food substances by changing their properties to preserve it, improve its quality or make it functionally more useful. Food processors take raw or agriculturally produced animal, vegetable, or marine products and transform them into edible products through the application of labour, machinery, energy, and scientific knowledge. Either specific or a combination of Physical, Chemical, biological, and mechanical processes are used to convert relatively bulky, perishable, and typically inedible food materials into shelf-stable, convenient, and palatable Foods and beverages. Food processing is one of the largest manufacturing industries in the United States. The processors include canners, producers, wineries, and other food and beverage manufacturers and distributors. Session on: Current Trends in Food Technology Current advancements in food sector are implementing the artificial intelligence applications. Smart packaging systems like Nano packaging and edible packaging films are in use to a greater extent. Labeling the processed food for smart packaging and computerizing the food industry with robotics and automations would lead the industry to a totally new era. Scientific developments in the food industry have resulted in significant increases in productivity and adaptability for products as per the market needs. The industry has advanced from the full range of food examination at the atomic and small scale auxiliary level, through crude material handling to food designing. The advancements are moving towards novel preparing techniques, computerization, quality control and confirmation, microbiological security issues, progresses in conservation and bundling advances and tangible examinations. Session on: Chemical Analysis of Food Techniques and Applications Techniques and Applications review new technology and challenges in food analysis from multiple perspectives. The chemical analysis module will cover a review of novel technologies being used in food analysis, an in-depth analysis of several specific approaches, and an examination of the most innovative applications and future trends. The broader perspective of analysis covers an application of basic sciences and engineering to study the physical, chemical, and biochemical nature of foods, and the principles of food processing. With the view that food science brings together multiple scientific disciplines, the involved analysis incorporates concepts from fields such as Microbiology, Chemical engineering and Biochemistry. Session on: Food Security: The Rising Crisis and Its Management Food security can be explained in the context of production as well as availability. The changes in environmental conditions can result in yield changes and thus has an ecological perspective to be studied. Changes in the environmental conditions and severity of droughts and floods could pose tasks for farmers and ranchers and threaten food safety and security. There is a long established system of food safety control and regulation which occurs at the federal and regional levels. The main agencies involved at the federal level include the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) of the United States and the Department of Agriculture (USDA). The Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act 1938 (FDCA) as amended sets out the authority of the FDA whilst the Meat and Poultry Inspection Acts and the Egg Inspection Act set out the authority of FSIS. Each state however also has its own agencies and regulations with differences in their organization and complexity. In addition certain state agencies undertake inspections, under contract, on behalf of the FDA. The Centre for Disease Control, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department for Home Security also contribute to the regulation and control of food safety. Session on: Food Industry and Health Hazards The widespread growth of technological advancements, especially in the processing segment in the food industry has facilitated the technological marriages and amalgamation of various other scientific disciplines with the food science discipline. The physio-chemical industry and the governing concepts like mass transfers, kinetics involved in flow of fluids are immensely used to design the machineries. This session deals with the designing of equipment, food plant layout design and implementation of sensors in food and beverage industry. In addition, food safety and quality management often reduce post-harvest losses and increase food availability to enhance food security. Integrating food safety and quality in food supply chains increases and sustains the supply of quality safe foods in internal markets, and help reach the demand-supply balance. Session on: Food Marketing and Economy: Global Issues and Challenges Food marketing involves many kinds of challenges such as dealing with a perishable product whose quality and availability varies as a function of current harvest conditions. Food prices also tend to be lower in the U.S. than they are in most industrialized countries, leaving more money for other purposes. Americans, on the average, are estimated to spend 7-11% of their income on food. Food Marketing Efficiency refers to providing consumers with desired levels of service at the lowest cost possible. The low prices in the US and the price difference may tend to act as a market restrain, especially by posing a threat for the new entrants in the Food Production market due to lower profit margins. The food economy is continuing to globalize and the growth in international trade and investment continues to outpace growth in production. In the coming decades, the global food economy will increasingly become an open market space in which major developing countries will have a greater weightage, as suppliers, as consumers and in terms of technologies. Small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) are also challenged by the on-going globalization process. Session on: Food, Public Health & Hygiene Food can be a basic vehicle for trans­mission of extensive variety of diseases. The transmission of human sicknesses through food, water and waste water is a worldwide issue, particularly of creating nations Awareness of health hazards arising from the consumption of contaminated food has grown in recent years and has resulted in national and worldwide strengthening of Food cleanliness programs. The highest percentage of contamination was mainly found in raw foods, raw meats and dry foods. It is an established fact that once food is subjected to the attack of microorganisms the microbial population increases within a few hours at normal temperature, because food is an ideal culture medium for multiplication of a variety of microorganisms. Session on: Prevention of Contamination during the Process of Production Contamination is the undesired introduction of impurities or of a foreign matter, in to or on to a starting material or intermediate most illnesses caused by Food contamination instead usually must wait until the bacteria leaves the body. Prevention of Contamination is important to avoid the contamination of meat and poultry whenever possible. This includes inadvertent contamination or cross-contamination from the live animal, processing procedures and equipment, employees, and the environment. Contamination can be minimized or avoided altogether by following appropriate sanitation procedures, good manufacturing procedures (GMPs), and procedures for employee hygiene. Foodborne illness can be extremely serious in some cases, but mostly it causes serious discomfort. Protect yourself from foodborne illness by buying fresh foods, storing food properly, avoiding food contamination in the kitchen, and keeping your foods properly refrigerated. Session on: Nutritive Aspects of food In addition to providing the substance for building and maintaining the body, the consumed food provides energy for all of the body's functions. Further, there is increasing evidence that mental processes and behavioral attitudes are influenced by nutritional status and specific nutrients. Nutrition is the science of food and its relationship to health. The food scientists must consider the nutritive aspects of food from two broad points: First, what nutrients do foods contain and their requirements; and Second, what are the relative stabilities of these nutrients and how are they affected by food processing and handling. The science of nutrition, concerned with these broad areas, also deals with the physiological and biochemical phenomena of food utilization as relative to health. Session on: Food Nutrition & Dietary Supplements Dietary supplements incorporate vitamins, minerals, herbs, sports sustenance items, normal nourishment supplements, and other related nutrients used to help the wholesome substance of the eating routine. The diet of humans can provide the diverse blend of nutrients needed for growth, maintenance, and overall health. Nutrition is the science that interprets the interaction of nutrients and other substances in food in relation to maintenance, growth, reproduction, health and disease of an organism. Nutrition needs change with aging, pregnancy, and lactation and may be altered by acute and chronic diseases or other medical conditions. Many nutrients can be produced abundantly and inexpensively through laboratory synthesis, microbial fermentation, or other processes. Session on: Health Nutrition & Nutraceuticals Food and Nutrition plays an important role in health maintenance as well as in disease management. With the increase in lifestyle disorders and prevalence of chronic diseases, it is important to promote healthy nutrition in all age groups. Improving eating habits is not just for an individual but for the whole population. Nutrition relates to improved infant, child and maternal health, stronger immune system to fight diseases, safer pregnancy and childbirth, bring down danger of non-transferable sicknesses and life span. Nutraceuticals is a wide umbrella term got from nourishment sources with additional medical advantages notwithstanding the fundamental wholesome esteem found in Food. They can be considered non-particular natural treatments used to advance general prosperity, control manifestations and avert dangerous procedures.
