The Frozen Food Foundation is seeking nominations for the third annual Frozen Food Foundation Freezing Research Award, presented in conjunction with the International Association for Food Protection (IAFP). The award honors an individual, group, or organization for preeminence in, and outstanding contributions to, the field of research impacting food safety through freezing. The award recipient will receive a plaque and a $2,000 honorarium sponsored by the Frozen Food Foundation.
“The Frozen Food Foundation sees great value in recognizing leaders in the field of freezing research,” said Foundation President Kraig Naasz. “This award not only honors the present achievements of food safety professionals, but helps encourage new developments in freezing research, especially as they relate to food safety.”
Areas of interest may include the environmental impact of various freezing techniques; freezing as a complement to other food preservation techniques; and the ability of the freezing process to kill or destroy certain microorganisms found in food.
IAFP is accepting award nominations through Feb. 28, 2012. Nomination forms and instructions for submitting nominations can be found online at www.frozenfoodfacts.org.
