The use of controlled and modified atmospheres (as a supplement to cold chain maintenance) is one of the most effective postharvest technologies: mixing low levels of oxygen and high levels of carbon dioxide is a well known practice, widely used in the industry in order to extend postharvest life of whole and fresh-cut horticultural products.
In the last years, in addition to continued studies of the impact of CA/MA atmospheres on product physiology and quality and the search for optimal atmosphere composition for specific commodities, new research areas have been explored: CA/MA
effectiveness in combination with co-treatments, extreme concentrations of O2 and/or CO2, innovative gases to substitute nitrogen, impact of CA/MA on nutritional and sensorial attributes.
All these aspects, together with recent developments in packaging technologies and with economic aspects related to both sustainability and environmental implications, will play an important role in the XI International Controlled & Modified Atmosphere Research Conference, which will be held in Trani, Italy on June 3-7, 2013.
Italy has always been a leading Country for the horticulture production, with major reference to pome and stone fruit, table grapes, kiwifruit and several vegetable crops. About 60% of the estimated 14 millions m3 storage volume is equipped with CA technology applied in particular for long-term storage of apples (84% of the total) , pears (44%), and kiwifruits (35%). On the other hand, vegetable industry is also well developed (leafy greens, artichokes, potatoes and tomatoes), and Italy represents one of the largest European markets for fresh-cut salads, where MAP is commonly applied.

Dear colleagues, It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the 9th European Conference on Precision Agriculture (ECPA) to be held in Lleida, Catalonia, Spain, under the auspices of the International Society of Precision Agriculture (ISPA) and the Universitat de Lleida (UdL).
Lleida is a very important fresh fruit and wine production area in Catalonia and in Spain. Unfortunately, Precision Fructiculture is still far away of being adopted on a regular commercial basis.The Universitat de Lleida and specifically the Escola Tècnica Superior d’Enginyeria Agrària de Lleida (School of Agricultural and Forestry Engineering of Lleida) are working on developing tools for PA. Hosting such an important event as ECPA will surely help our region and other related areas to realize that PA is part of the future.
PA is as an important issue now as when first developing in the late 80s/early 90s. The size of ECPA meetings allows focusing on specific topics related to all PA practices while discovering what our colleagues are working on, enabling synergies and co-operation. Moreover, 9ECPA will be a standalone conference as ECPLF and EFITA are meeting elsewhere. In addition, 9ECPA will keep the standards of its Proceedings following an accurate edition and asking the Scientific Committee to carefully assess the papers.
The PMA Foodservice Conference & Exposition is the only event focused exclusively on fresh produce in foodservice and is widely rated by attendees as one of the industry's best values for learning and networking.
Buyers and suppliers from all points along the foodservice supply chain discover current and future trends, see the latest and future products and services, including menu applications, strengthen existing business relationships, meet future talent and create new partnerships and learn more about current issues and topics.

Exhibitor participation will be to support, not overshadow, retailer interaction.
Chicago is home to many exciting venues including the Chicago International Produce Market, world-class restaurants, national retail chains and niche stores. These will be made available to show attendees in private "backstage" tours on Wednesday. A variety of options will be offered at a small fee to cover transportation expenses.

A 3-Day workshop for food professionals, including lectures, demonstrations, discussions & updates of fresh-cut fruit & vegetable research
This workshop, presented by the UC Davis Postharvest Technology Center, provides a solid overview of this product category and is relevant to all levels of fresh-cut produce industry professionals -- from small, local and regional produce processors to large businesses with nationwide distribution. Food scientists, food engineers, quality assurance personnel and new product development staff as well as representatives from research institutions, the restaurant and institutional food industries, and equipment, packaging and ingredient suppliers will all benefit from attending.
Fresh-cut products (cleaned, washed, cut, packaged and refrigerated fruits and vegetables) are an important and ever-expanding food category for the produce industry, food processors, retailers, and food service operators. With increased interest in fresh-cut products comes the manufacturer’s desire to meet consumer demand with safe products that are packaged and distributed to maintain freshness and nutrition, extend shelf life, while ensuring good eating quality.
This workshop provides an overview of many issues on the production, processing, packaging, distribution and quality assurance of fresh-cut products. Participants gain working knowledge of established and new procedures for fresh-cut products through topic-related sessions. The workshop also features discussions on microbial food safety and the effects of temperature and modified atmospheres on fresh-cut fruit and vegetable quality. The corps of instructors for the workshop are highly experienced and come from academia, the fresh-cut industry, and allied equipment and service providers.
