Delegations representing academia, research and development were expected to take part in the symposium, besides 25 eminent scientists from India and abroad and present lead research papers on the current development topics, he added.
Dr Bawa said the symposium was the most comprehensive and ambitious undertaking on 'emerging technologies'. It would cover most of the relevant novel technologies applicable to food processing.
It would also explore the most recent applications in Pulsed Electric Field (PEF), irradiation and high pressure technologies, food microbiology and modern thermal and non thermal operations to prevent the occurance of food borne Pathogens, which would extend the shelf life of foods and improve the safety, quality and nutritional value of various food products.
