The Postharvest Technology Center at the University of California-Davis has scheduled its 21st Annual Fresh-cut Products Workshop in September.

The annual event, Sept. 17-19, covers a spectrum of fresh-cut product information. Topics that will be covered include:

  • Marketing;
  • Packaging;
  • Microbial control;
  • Product physiology; and
  • Sensory evaluation.

A demonstration on the effect of temperature on packaged product quality will reinforce the importance of temperature control, according to a news release.

“This workshop provides an intensive and substantive overview of fresh-cut production, processing, packaging, distribution and quality assurance,” according to the release. “Participants gain working knowledge of established and new procedures through topic-related sessions and demonstrations.”

The workshop is at the University of California-Davis and costs $1,300. Enrollment is available online.
