VI International Conference on Managing Quality in Chains MQUIC2013
Technical innovations for maintaining fresh produce quality are often done in isolation, without a full appreciation about how they might impact or be affected by supply chain management. The conference aims to readdress this problem and provide a forum in which academics, industrialists and students may interact to provide real world solutions for the fresh produce industry.
Key topics: The conference will cover the entire fresh produce postharvest supply chain and include the following topics:
- Reducing waste and resource mapping
- Consumer-centred technological advances
- Integrating supply chain management with novel postharvest technologies
- Improving knowledge transfer between the academic community and industry.
The conference will look forward to the challenges that will face the industry in the coming decade and how these might be overcome in the developed and developing world and in the emerging markets.
