Tokyo, officially Tokyo Metropolis, is the capital city of Japan and one of its 47 prefectures. It is the busy capital, mixes the ultramodern and the traditional, from neon-lit skyscrapers to historic temples The opulent Meiji Shinto Shrine is known for its towering gate and surrounding woods. The Imperial Palace sits amid large public gardens. The city's many museums offer exhibits ranging from classical art (in the Tokyo National Museum) to a reconstructed kabuki theater (in the Edo-Tokyo Museum).

Track 1.Food Preservation:

Food preservation is to prevent the growth of microorganisms , as well as slowing the oxidation of fats that cause rancidity. Some traditional methods of preserving food have been shown to have a lower energy input and carbon footprint, when compared to modern methods. Knowing how to preserve food has been crucial all over our history as humans. Study that before the introduction of refrigeration, which was eventually devised in the 18th century, but was not perfected and widespread until the 20th century, most of development had to make do devoid of refrigeration and freezing.

Track 2.Food Adulteration:

Adulteration usually refers to the mixing of other harmful materials with food or drink to increase the quantity. As a result of adulteration, food or drink becomes impure and unfit for human consumption. It leads to the loss of nutrient content in the food. Adulterated food is unsafe because it may be lethal and can affect human health and it could degrade the nutrients essential for proper growth and development of human body. Some of the common adulterated foods are milk and milk products, atta, edible oils, cereals, condiments (whole and ground), pulses, coffee, tea, confectionary, baking powder, non - alcoholic beverages, vinegar, besan and curry powder.

Track 3.Food and Beverage Processing:

Food and Beverages are processed to improvise the quality of the food. The processing of food is done to preserve the food. Once if any food item is processed the lifespan of that food gets increased. Many processing techniques are in use to improve the quality of food. There are both natural and artificial food and beverage processing methods, many methods are in use from the ancient period.

Track 4. Nutritive Aspects of Food:

In addition to providing the substance for building and maintaining the body, the energy for all of the body's functions comes from the food consumed. Further, there is increasing evidence that mental processes and behavioural attitudes are influenced by nutritional status and specific nutrients. The food scientist must consider the nutritive aspects of food from two broad points of view: first, what nutrients do foods contain and what are man's requirements for these; and second, what are the relative stabilities of these nutrients and how are they affected by food processing and handling. The science of nutrition, concerned with these broad areas, also deals with the physiological and biochemical phenomena of food utilization as related to health.

Track 5. Food Quality, Safety and Preservation:

Food preservation  on the other hand fundamentally aiming at minimizing post harvest losses of food while improving the shelf-life and value supplement. As food safety concerns started to surface with food borne illnesses, food safety management systems slowly progressed and developed to today's sophisticated levels. Food and water borne diseases are major public health problems worldwide and an important cause of malnutrition, in infants and young children. Food safety and quality management systems control food safety hazards and ensure safe food supplies for a well nourished and healthy nation. In addition, food safety and quality management often reduce post harvest losses and increase food availability to enhance food security. Integrating food safety and quality in food supply chains increases and sustains the supply of quality safe foods in internal markets.

Track 6. Recent Advancement in Food and Beverage Sector:

Recent advancements in food and beverage sector includes artificial intelligence development in food industry, smart packaging systems like Nano packaging, edible packaging films are virally growing. Apart from smart packaging many new innovations such as food labelling, fully computerize the food industry with robotics and automations, which would further lead to a totally new era in food industry. The food and beverages conference mainly deals with the advancements such as nano packaging, plasma technology, robotics etc.,

Track 7. Evaluation of Food and Beverage Plant:

The widespread growth of technological advances stack up with electricity which has revolutionized food industry and prompted the manufacture of new specialist food processing machineries. To design the machineries immense knowledge about the mass transfers, kinetics involved in flow of fluids is preferred. This session of food conference deals with the most important part of the industry, the designing of equipment’s, food plant layout design, and implementation of sensors in food and beverage industry.

Track 8.  Fermentation & Bioprocess Engineering:

Fermentation is defined as converting carbohydrates to alcohol or inorganic acids using microorganisms. As the microorganisms divide, lactic acid is formed, which stops the growth of bad bacteria. The lactic acid is also what gives fermented foods that very specific ‘tangy’ or ‘acidic’ taste. Fermented foods can last for many months (some products even lasting multiple years) as long as they are stored in a cool, dark place and kept in the solution of salt and water known as brine. Fermentation can also make food healthier and safer to consume. For instance, in the Middle Ages, drinking water was hazardous because it frequently contained pathogens that could spread disease. Making the water into beer made it safe to drink, as any deadly bacteria previously present in the water were killed during the brewing process. Additionally, since microorganisms can produce vitamins as they ferment, the beer had added nutrients in it from the barley and various other ingredients. The most regularly consumed fermented food and drink would be cheese, beer, wine, yogurt, cured sausage and sourdough bread. Many store-bought fermented foods, like sauerkraut or pickles, are not authentic as they are often preserved in vinegar instead of the traditional and naturally occurring beneficial bacteria. Due to North America’s strict health and safety concerns, these foods are also often pasteurised, which robs the foods of their nutrients and minerals.

Track 9. Dairy Food and its Commercial Future:

Dairy foods are which extracted from or containing milk of mammals, cows, buffaloes, goat, sheep, camels and humans. This also includes yogurt, cheese and butter. As the dairy products are rich in nutrition their commercial value is high and has a greater demand in the future. Most of the dairy products are used in the preparation of commercial foods such as sweets.

Track 10. Nutrition in Cancer care:

Nutrition is a process where food is taken in and utilised by the body for growth, to keep the body healthy, and to interchange the tissue. Good nutrition is essential for good health. Eating the healthy  foods before, during, and after cancer treatment can help the patient feel better and stay stronger. A healthy diet includes eating and drinking enough of the foods and liquids that have the important nutrients (vitamins, minerals, protein, carbohydrates, fat, and water) the body needs. When the body does not get or cannot absorb the nutrients needed for health, it causes a condition called malnutrition or malnourishment.

Track 11.  Effect of Climate Change on Food Production:

Agriculture and fisheries are very much dependent on the climate. Rise in the temperature, carbon dioxide and other environmental conditions can increase some crop yields in some areas. Changes in the environmental conditions and severity of droughts and floods could pose tasks for farmers and ranchers and threaten food safety.  Meanwhile, warmer water temperatures are likely to cause the habitat ranges of many fish and shellfish species to shift, which could disturb ecosystems. Overall, climate change could make it more hard to grow crops, raise animals, and catch fish in the same ways and same places as we have done in the past. we are all aware that certain fruits,vegetables grow at certain conditions those are known as seasonal crops, these are all completely dependent on the climate conditions.

Track 12. Government Food Safety Policies & Regulations:

There is a long established system of food safety control and regulation which occurs at the federal (interstate commerce and import) and regional (intrastate commerce) level.  The  main agencies involved at the federal level include the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and  the  Food  Safety  Inspection  Service  (FSIS)  of  the  United  States  Department  of  Agriculture  (USDA).  The Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act  1938  (FDCA)  as  amended  sets  out the authority of the FDA whilst the Meat and Poultry Inspection Acts and the Egg Inspection Act set out the authority of FSIS. Each  state  however  also  has  its  own  agencies  and  regulations which  each differ  in  their organisation  and  complexity.  In addition certain state agencies undertake inspections, under contract, on behalf of the FDA.

The Centre for Disease Control, the Environmental Protection Agency  and  the Department  for Home Security also contribute to the regulation and control of food safety. here  have  been  a  number  of  recent  high  profile  food  incidents  related  to  both  domestic and imported food which have lead to the introduction of new legislation– the Food Safety Modernisation Act(FSMA) 2011. This is reportedly the most significant item of legislation in over  70  years  and  introduces  a  new  approach  to  the  regulation  of  food  safety.  It  moves away  from  the  previous  method  of  monitoring  and  reacting  to  food  instances  when  they  occur to one of prevention.

 

 Introduction:

Food & Beverages practice focuses on product innovation to meet rapidly changing consumer needs, revolutionary packaging for on-the-go consumption, and targeted one-on-one promotions using technology. Food and Beverages practice is a key element in clients being able to decode new sourcing, manufacturing, supply chain and marketing opportunities.

Scope and Importance:

The food and beverage concept is the fastest growing sector which is generating exceptionally high revenue all over the world. The main reason behind this fact is busy life and cosmopolitan lifestyle of people around the world. We can see most of families are now depending on treated foods and drinks due to various reasons. Further, it can be also noticed that the sector is having immense future opportunities. Therefore, we can find everyday more people are jumping into food and beverage industry as it favourable sector where companies earn huge returns on their investments. However, when it comes to food and beverage products people usually do not trust new brand as these products are directly associated with the health of an individual and their family. That is why new brands in market need a better exposure to enlighten the core competencies of their product. The products have many segments with different features like taste, colour, composition, and benefits. These products use all the best mediums to promote their products as well as always present something.

Research Value:

The food and beverages industry is gradually noticing multimillion dollar opportunities in growth markets in Asia Pacific and Latin America. While advanced markets are exhibiting a shift towards natural and organically-sourced food, a demand for treated and ready-to-eat foods is now taking shape in evolving economies. Consumers, on their part, are moving away from partially hydrogenated oils, GMO food, and are looking for natural alternatives to artificial flavours and colours. 

Manufacturers in the food and beverages industry classically operate on low profit limitations and high volume sales are thus an imperative to profitability. This is where the role of densely-tenanted emerging economies such as Japan India, Brazil, Russia, and China comes into play. Low profit margins continue to persist as a challenge for companies in the food and beverages industries but a tightening regulatory environment will also compel companies to realign their operations to some extent. The food and beverages industry is also increasingly feeling the need to be more responsive to food security concerns.

Business Value of Food and Beverages:

The total value of the food and beverages division universally in 2014 was $6318 billion. Connected to a world population of more than 7 billion in 2014 this connects to about $902 per person globally. Given that world Domestic invention was roughly $78 trillion in 2014 the food and beverages treating market makes up about 7.9% of the global frugality. Much of the value processed food is associated to image and perception. From the report  of “100 most valuable global brands of 2014” by Millward Brown.

Future Prospect:

The global food and beverage industry is growing at 3.5% a year and is expected to be worth more than US$7 trillion by 2016.

Foods and beverages that offer validated health claims account for around US$25 billion of global sales, mainly in the key markets of Japan, the USA and Europe. Levels of food and drink waste by commercial and industrial businesses in the food sector were almost halved down 49%.

 The food sector (excluding agriculture) is showing resilience to the economic downturn with an increase of 6.3%. There was a rise of 7.4% in food wholesaling, 4.7% in food manufacturing and 14.6% in non-residential catering. Food retailing changed little at 0.4%.

Longer term, the food sector (excluding agriculture) increased by 48% between while the whole economy increased by 61%. The food sector has fewer scope for progress as there is a limit to user aperture volume and therefore it trusts largely on quality improvements.

Conclusion:

The food and drink industry and all its sub-sectors have a good international trade position with all sectors demonstrating improvement over the past years, despite weakening labour productivity and value added. This development can largely be attributed to the global perception of the high quality of European products and increasing incomes driving higher consumer demand for food and drinks products in emerging countries. The conclusion of a series of free trade agreements with non-EU countries in the last years has also contributed to increased market opportunities.

With Government policy targeted at more primary production converting towards organic methods, it is expected that domestic production will continue to grow during the forthcoming years. Based on the documents reviewed and interviews with key players in the trade and sales sectors of organic products, it seems valid to conclude that it is more likely that the Netherlands, a major agricultural exporter, will also become a major exporter of organic vegetables, especially for temperate zone products (mostly vegetables) and greenhouses products (peppers, tomatoes and cucumbers).
