Dear Visitor,
I would like to welcome you to the website of the Integrated Project ‘Novel processing methods for the production and distribution of high-quality and safe foods’. Here, you will find the latest news on research and development at the crosroads of food manufacturing and process equipment development, including the NovelQ project summary, its objectives and partners. NovelQ deals with research and development of novel preservation technologies to improve the quality and shelf-life of fresh-like products.
On behalf of the NovelQ consortium,
Huug de Vries, Project co-ordinator NovelQ

About NovelQ
NovelQ is an Integrated Project, contract no. FOOD-CT-2005-015710 funded by the European Commission, within the sixth Framework Programme, priority Food Quality and Safety. The main objective is to develop and successfully demonstrate - eco-friendly - novel processing technologies (high pressure processing, pulsed electric field processing, plasma, advanced heating technologies and packaging) for improved quality (fresh-like character, extended shelf-life) food. The project has started on 1 March 2006 and has a duration of 5 years. It has a total funding of 10.9 million Euro.
