Innovation in
Agri-Food Systems

Product Quality and Consumer Acceptance
edited by W. Jongen and M. Meulenberg

Innovation in Agri-Food Systems focuses on consumer-driven food product innovation using a systems-oriented approach. It integrates marketing and consumer sciences with technological aspects such as processing, logistics and information technology, and presents an integrated view of how new food product development is to be situated in a chain-oriented approach.

Attention is also paid to the impact of changes in the environment of the agri-food system on food innovation, such as the changing consumer, the growing concern about food safety and new insights in human nutrition.

Topics covered include:

  • changing markets
  • consumer perception of product quality
  • quality function deployment
  • the use of new and improved technology in food production
  • logistics and information technology
  • the role of regulation and legislation
  • quality management and control systems such as HACCP and TQM
