Sammendrag
There is an urgent need to provide food and feed ingredients for the growing world population while tackling the problem of food loss at a global scale at the same time. Solutions for reducing food loss and strengthening the bio-economy were in main focus areas for the first symposium arranged by the Indo-Norwegian RE-food pro-ject in Goa on 8-9 February 2018. The symposium was jointly arranged by SINTEF Ocean and BITS Pilani where almost sixty researchers and industry representa-tives from Norway and India met to discuss the emerging challenges of sustainable food production and preservation. Climate friendly refrigeration for storage and transportation of food, energy effi-cient processing, utilization of rest raw materials and automation of handling and production were the main topics discussed. Researchers and students from both Norway and India presented their work in form of oral and poster presentations. Industry participants included Nishi Indo Foods, a surimi company and Suvichaar, a start-up promoting consumption of fresh fish.
