CIGR and Oniris are pleased to invite you to the

6th International CIGR Technical Symposium

Towards a Sustainable Food Chain

Food Process, Bioprocessing and Food Quality Management

Nantes, France - April 18-20, 2011

Get the opportunity

The Food and Microbial Engineering Laboratory of the University of Burgundy and Agrosup Dijon, together with the Embrapa Labex Europa and the Food Safety Group of CIGR (International Commission of Agricultural Engineering) organize a workshop "Food Safety: Advances and Trends", to be held on the 14th and 15th April 2011 at Agrosup Dijon, with the support of Welience. More info.


CIGR Section VI (Postharvest Technology and Process Engineering) deals with the engineering and priciples ans technologies in postharvest ans processing of agri-food products. It is devoted to follow the trends, promote the advancement and enhance the dissemination and transfer of technology in postharvest and processing at a global scale.

To fulfil better its missions, Section VI of CIGR is organizing the
6th International Technical Symposium
