FRUTIC Symposium


FRUTIC provides the platform for research network on emerging technologies or current issues in the industry. Topics capture technology advancement in production, harvest, postharvest, distribution and quality control of fruit, nut, and vegetables. This event is to provide a concerted platform that brings together academic scientists and all the role players from fresh produce industry, to interact with each other for the purpose of information dissemination, sharing practical experience and developing road maps for the most effective way to reach the common goals.

  • Postharvest physiology
  • Postharvest decay and physiological disorders
  • Metabolomics for quality and safety
  • Sensors for non-destructive assessment methods
  • Spoilage and pathogenic organisms: biology and control
  • Human pathogen detection
  • Toxins and chemical residues
  • Sanitation and disinfection
  • Sensorial attributes
  • Diagnostic kits
  • Nutritional and functional attributes
  • Volatile organic compounds
  • Fresh produce supply chain
  • Reducing postharvest losses
