Food Processing and Engineering Research Group

Food Processing

Summary of Activities

A significant fraction of the processed food in Nigeria is imported- even foods which are traditionally grown in the country.

This group investigates the processing of a wide range of local foods
on a laboratory scale using parameters which could be scaled-up for commercial application.
