Looking for a consortium as a partner to contribute to the Topic 2.3.1-2023 (RIA) Assessing novel antimicrobial food packaging and coating materials to reduce food waste to improve safety in the Mediterranean food supply chain” and Topic 1.3.1-2023 (RIA) Increasing agri-food supply chain (cereal) resilience in the MENA region”. The research area is mainly based on cereal processing and food product development. Main expertise designing natural antimicrobial/biodegradable packaging materials and characterization via FTIR, SEM, TEM, DSC, TGA to decrese the food waste. We will be able to contribute to Topic 2.3.1 by synthesizing and characterizing various natural antimicrobial biopolymers to be used in packaging materials. Additionally, we will be able to contribute to Topic 1.3.1 through the production of various cereal products and the valorization of cereal processing waste for maintaining food security, health and nutrition.
