For the first time, engineering for the packaging industry - and for the biggest packaging user, food processing - is presented in a way that clearly demonstrates its interconnected, globally integrated nature. Food and Package Engineering is a groundbreaking work that serves as a comprehensive guide to the complexities and the potential of the industry.
Packaging draws on nearly every aspect of science, technology, business, social science, and engineering.ÿ Rather than present a traditionally linear view of these topics, the author takes a "Packaging Cycle" approach by guiding readers through the life of the package from raw materials and conversion, operations, distribution, retail, all the way to recycling or disposal by the consumer. ÿFood and Package Engineering includes many essential topics usually not addressed in other food engineering or packaging texts, including:
úÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ Raw materials production and conversion
úÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ Inventory management and production scheduling
úÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ Regulations, security and food safety
úÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ Recycling and landfill issues
