Program Description

Food production has become, in many circumstances, an act so industrialized as possible, worrying those responsible with the more quantitative aspects of the process than with product quality. The complexity of food chains is increasing, resulting in many interactions which may be the basis of risks to consumers, whose control will thus become more difficult. Food Security so requires an integrated and responsible approach, which stretches from production to consumers in a manner consistent, effective and dynamic.


  • To assess the quality of the food value, either raw or processed products, so as to contribute thereby to ensure, together with other technicians, security of food consumption and health;
  • To intervene in the productive processes of the food industries, seeking to optimize the process itself and minimize the environmental impacts arising from it;
  • Adequate training to the design of new products, food and others, and the reformulation of current products;
  • To intervene in the processes of standardization and certification of products and systems for production and processing of products and raw food;
  • Management of emissions, effluents and wastes and other disorders arising in processes of production, processing and distribution in food industries.


Level of production, quality control and food security in agro-food industries and to develop new products or improve existing ones. Tasks of research and development and consulting services in Technology and/or Food Safety.
