FSRI - Department of Technology and Food Chain Analysis

Research Field

The research activities of this department cover two major thematic groups. The Technology group is interested in development and industrial application of novel, environmental friendly and energy saving food technologies to serve the promotion of high-quality, high-added value and competitive food products. In their research work new food products are also developed by applying traditional and new processing and preservation technologies. They also work on research projects with utilization of waste materials of fruit processing, production and utilization of fruit fibre and micro-milled products. The Food Chain Analysis group takes afford to harmonize better and operate more effective the analyses carried out with the participants of the whole food chain in the field of food safety, quality development and innovation. Their analyses in consumer groups (risk perception, consumers’ acceptance, payment willingness) contribute to the consumers’ consciousness, consumer protection and provide more useful information for the consumers. Analyses carried out with food producers and distributors promote to develop the risk management practice, increase the efficiency of food safety and environmental protection acts.

Research Projects

  • Consumer surveys supporting innovation in food industry (2017-2019)
  • Effect of mild food preservation and processing technologies on the biological useful compounds of plant origin food and on the pesticide; analysis of consumer’s acceptance of technologies (2013-2017)
  • Research for the food application of GMO free, reduced tripsin inhibitor content soybean adaptable for domestic cultivation (2014-2019)
