  1. 1. A Missed Steak: A Study of the Value Added by Dynamic Best-before Labels

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Företagsekonomiska institutionen

    Author : Ernest Björklund; Mattias Letellier; [2020]
    Keywords : Best-before dates; Best-before labels; Consumer perceptions; Dynamic best- before; Food waste; Innovation; Mature industries; Meat; Technology; Value chains; Business and Economics; Agriculture and Food Sciences;

    Abstract : I mogna industrier prioriteras ofta verkningsgrad och processen snarare än själva produkten. Detta innebär att dessa industrier anpassar sig långsamt när de externa förhållandena skiftar. Exempel på sådan industri är Sveriges köttindustri. Denna präglas av stor klimatpåverkan, även stora mängder matsvinn. READ MORE

  2. 2. Land redistributions in Denmark: can agricultural exceptionalism produce multifunctional landscapes? : An analysis of the Multifunctional Land Redistribution Fund and its likely implications for future land use in Denmark

    University essay from Lunds universitet/LUCSUS

    Author : Sara Kjær Rasmussen; [2020]
    Keywords : multifunctionality; agricultural exceptionalism; consensus; land use governance; Sustainability Science; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : This thesis examines the Multifunctional Land Redistribution Fund, launched in March 2020 by the Danish Ministry of Environment and Food, and the outcomes this policy may propel. The Fund takes aim at multiple issues of sustainability related to land use: biodiversity loss, groundwater contamination, nutrient leaching, and rural development. READ MORE

  3. 3. Analyzing potato protein isolates for their potential in developing meat analogues

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Livsmedelsteknik och nutrition (master)

    Author : Jade Yu Lan Schut; [2020]
    Keywords : potato protein isolates; meat analogues; meat alternatives; rapid visco analyzer; high moisture extrusion; textured vegetable proteins; food technology; livsmedelsteknologi; Agriculture and Food Sciences; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : To keep up with the rapidly increasing global population, a significant increase in production of protein foods is required. The environmental impact of the meat industry, in combination with consumer awareness, calls for this food production to become more sustainable. READ MORE

  4. 4. Analyses of microbial community in nutrient solution with biofertilizer and risk assessment of establishment of pathogens

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk mikrobiologi

    Author : Julia Södergren; [2020]
    Keywords : Biofertilizer; hydroponic; 16S rRNa sequencing; challenge testing; calorimetry; applied microbiology; teknisk mikrobiologi; Agriculture and Food Sciences; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The societal interest for a more sustainable and circular food production is increasing. Hydroponic farming is an alternative way of growing vegetables that can bring farming into urban environments, reducing long transports of food. In parallel, the focus in waste treatment is being more directed toward resource recovery. READ MORE

  5. 5. Predicting fillability of viscoelastic product in Tetra Recart

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Förpackningslogistik

    Author : Nawapan Boonchum; Roxanne Mae V. Targa; [2020]
    Keywords : Meat batter; Filling machine; Rheology; Pressure drop; Non-Newtonian fluid; Agriculture and Food Sciences; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : It is of interest to design a methodology in predicting the fillability of non-Newtonian viscoelastic product such as meat batter by analyzing its rheological properties, reducing the need to perform pilot plant scale tests. Meat batter with different added water produced in laboratory and pilot plant were analyzed to represent meat batters with different rheological characteristics and filling behaviour. READ MORE
