Roadmap published on “Microsystems for Dairy Processing and Safety”

Roadmapping Microsystems for the Dairy sector

The economic importance of the dairy sector in Europe is underlined by more than 11.000 enterprises representing a total production value of more than 100 B€. Dairy is not only the largest segment of the food industry, it also represents 17% of the total European food export. The report provides a review of the supply chain and of the main drivers for innovation in the dairy sector as well as technology-to-application roadmaps for implementing MST-based solutions in several areas:
– Safety,
– Process and quality control,
– Cleaning and maintenance,
– Microfiltration.

Overall, four roadmaping reports have been developed in the FoodMicroSystems project: three roadmaps for the implementation of microsystems in the dairy, meat and beverage sectors and one final report that provides suggestions to address the technological needs in three areas (chemical and biochemical electronic sensors, microorganism detection and tracking &tracing systems). The section also provides links to the workshops organised to prepare the roadmaps:
