Veg-i-Trade organizes Mini-Symposium on Water Quality and Water Treatment in Brussels on April 24th

Water, both in pre- and post-harvest setting, is a potential source for microbial contamination of fresh produce. Various water sources and water treatment systems are in use in Europe. EU FP7 Veg-i-Trade partners at AUGent in Belgium, CEBAS-CSIC in Spain and NVI, NIVA in Norway have made considerable effort in comparing various water desinfection technologies. The mini-Symposium, in collaboration with FreshFel, will present the impact of water use and water quality on the safety and quality of fresh produce and discuss the various approaches for water management and water treatment based upon experience from the EU FP7 Veg-i-Trade project partners.
