The Food Waste Recovery Group (SIG5 of the ISEKI-Food Association), chaired by Dr. Charis M. Galanakis, is organizing this workshop as a pre-conference event to the 6th ISEKI-Food Conference in Nicosia, dedicated to the recovery of high added-value compounds (e.g. polyphenols, antioxidants, pectin, carotenoids, proteins, glucosinolates, lipids etc) from food processing by-products (olive mill waste, grape marc, coffee silverskin, cereal processing by-products, meat co-products etc).

Objectives of the Workshop
All food companies have problems valorizing their waste and by-products. Solutions are often outside their expertise and need third party advice. The Food Waste Recovery group aims to support food industries and organisations to innovate and develop food waste recovery and sustainability projects. Finding the right strategy, technologies and potential applications for the recovered ingredients can be time-consuming, that is why this group are dedicated to delivering the answers needed to achieve these objectives by applying their experience, technical knowledge, extensive network and capabilities.

The objective of this workshop is to provide up-to-date knowledge and critical information in the field by:

  • advising food industries to recover valuable compounds from food processing by-products
  • exchanging methodologies, ideas and scale-up experiences
  • discussing relevant processes and technologies
  • investigating applications of recovered compounds in the food industry
  • highlighting sustainable solutions
  • recruiting experts

During the workshop, the following topics will be addressed:

  • Recent advances in food by-products processing: olive mill wastewater, wine lees, grape marc, coffee husk, coffee silverskin, polyphenol-rich substrates, wheat bran etc
  • Emerging non-thermal technologies for the recovery of compounds and the development of functional foods and nutraceuticals
  • Examples and success stories of industrial and commercialized applications
  • Presentation of Food Waste Recovery Group current activities
  • Round table discussion for future trends, synergies and consortium developments

This event was initially planned for 7-8 July 2020, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
