Reviews

"In Italian - no translation available" --Industrie Alimentari

"This book is organized into four sections which include fifteen chapters. Each section covers a well-defined area concerning different topics. This book is an excellent approach to understand the food sector and its particularities regarding innovation. It is perfect to have a first contact with existing methodologies and how they are and can be used. And specially, this book is a very good start point for keeping on research, transfer of knowledge and innovation development to ensure a more sustainable industry which is able to maintain quality of products and match the needs of markets and consumers." -- Natascha Wahlberg Macías, Project Management at AccionMK
