Workshop: Food extrusion technology (Walpa)

21 September 2017 @ 10:45 am - 12:30 pm

Levy-funded project VG15076 Creating value from edible vegetable waste is developing new knowledge and processes to improve recovery of edible material, with a focus on brassica vegetables and carrots. Avenues of exploration include the extraction of ‘nutraceuticals’ from vegetable waste; the processing of edible waste into new fibre-rich, healthy raw ingredients and food products; and the use of fermentation to develop next-generation fermented vegetables.

The CSIRO researchers working on VG15076, which is a strategic levy investment under the Hort Innovation Vegetable Fund, will be demonstrating extrusion technology in action at a workshop in Gippsland coordinated by VegNET East Gippsland.

Levy-paying growers who are interested in attending this workshop can contact Shayne Hyman on 0417 330 081 or at
