Due to the increase in world population (more than seven billion inhabitants) the global food industry has the largest number of demanding and knowledgeable consumers. This population requires food products that fulfill the high quality standards established by the food industry organizations. Food shortages threaten human health, and also the disastrous extreme climatic events make food shortages even worse. This collection of articles is a timely contribution to issues relating to the food industry.
It then outlines agriculture’s importance to the U.S. economy, assesses the vulnerabilities in the general food industry, examines the capabilities that are needed to exploit those vulnerabilities, and explores the likely outcomes from a successful attack. The report next considers the question of why terrorists have yet to employ agricultural assaults as a method of operation and concludes with proposed recommendations for the U.S. policymaking community.
This book pioneers life-saving innovations and assists in the combat against world
hunger and food shortages that threaten human essentials, such as water and energy
supply. Floods, droughts, fires, storms, climate change, global warming and
greenhouse gas emissions can be devastating, altering the environment and,
ultimately, the production of foods.
Support the development of the functional food industry in Ireland.
Create a new, internationally-competitive, interdisciplinary, industry-focused research centre developing skills and technologies that will lead to new products, processes and services.
Develop research programmes that are jointly formulated and implemented by the participating academic and industrial partners with a view to providing the best solutions to the medium and long term issues facing industry in Ireland.

Generally, a process is defined as a sequence of events that transforms the biological
materials of food products, via biochemical changes, into stable forms with added
value. This can create new products or modify existing ones. Process design refers to
the design of food processes and manufacturing methods, while plant design refers to
the design of the whole processing plant. The processing of food is no longer as simple
or straightforward as in the past. Food process design is an interdisciplinary science
that is highly regarded by the food industry.
The increasing global demand for processed foods has led to a greater prominence of the food industry, its specific needs and
processing challenges. Consequently, in recent times the role of the engineer in the food industry has gained considerable
prominence. In contrast to other more traditional processing industries, the raw materials or ingredients that are used
tend to be of greater complexity in nature.
The use of acoustic energy in food or bioprocessing operations is a relatively new
endeavor if compared with other sources of energy, such as mechanical or thermal,
which have been utilized for centuries in various applications. There are two
important factors that make the current ultrasound-assisted processes possible. One
is related with the development in ultrasound generation technology and the other
one is the better understanding of interactions between acoustic energy and liquid
media, enabling the development of important guidelines for ultrasound-based
