New International Course in Meat Product Technology

13 June 2014

SPAIN - A new International Course in Meat Product Technology will be held from 29 September to 17 October at the IRTA centre in Monells (Girona).

Food industry technology experts will take part of this annual event in which the main theoretical and practical aspects of the meat industry will be addressed.

The “13th edition of the International Course in Meat Product Technology", that will be held from September 29th to October 17th, 2014 at IRTA centre in Monells (Girona) will be divided into four modules, which may be taken jointly or separately.

These modules will focus on carcass and meat quality, sensory evaluation, and manufacturing technologies for fresh, cooked and dry-cured meat products.

Designed for meat industry technologists and professionals from other food specialties, the course will allow participants to combine rigorous, high-level training with a unique interactive experience with the teaching staff.

The practical sessions will be held at the pilot plant adjacent to the Auditorium of the IRTA Monells centre, in which fresh, cooked or salted products, and raw-cured sausages will be prepared.

A panoramic glass between the conference room and the pilot plant and a modern audio-visual system designed to communicate both areas will allow a good followup of the processes in the pilot plant from the conference room.

Furthermore, the diversity of the teaching staff formed by various professional and academic backgrounds will allow approaching the topics from a highly specialized and interdisciplinary point of view, making the International Course in Meat Product Technology a privileged space for creating debate and generating ideas and opinions.

With 13 years of experience, this course is another example of IRTA’s commitment to modernization and internationalization of its academic activities. Classes scheduled on this thirteenth edition confirm the strong steps towards the consolidation of this activity.

The 13th edition of the International Course in Meat Technology is organized by the Food Technology program of IRTA.
