IFT Press Book Investigates the Food Industry’s Sustainability Practices
One new IFT Press book is now available to order from Wiley-Blackwell.

• Sustainability in the Food Industry, edited by Cheryl J. Baldwin (ISBN: 978-0-8138-0846-8. 2008. 280 pp.), defines sustainability with a comprehensive review of the industry’s current approach to balancing environmental, economic, and social considerations throughout the supply chain. The text includes an overview of sustainable sources of impact and improvement, how they relate to the key sectors of the food industry, and how programs may be implemented for further improvement.

Sustainability is beginning to transform the food industry with environmental, economic, and social factors being considered, evaluated, and implemented throughout the supply chain like never before. The book combines technical research summaries, case studies, and marketing information to provide insight about sustainability as it relates to agricultural practices, food processing, distribution, waste management, packaging, life cycle analysis, food safety and health, environmental labeling, consumer insight and market demand, product development, practices in food manufacturing companies, food retailing, and food service. An international group of authors covers the information from a global perspective.

IFT Press books, developed in partnership with Wiley-Blackwell and crafted through rigorous peer review and meticulous research, serve as leading-edge handbooks for industrial application and reference and as essential texts for academic programs.

Topics of future books in the series include nanoscience and nanotechnology, food laws and regulations, microbial safety of fresh produce, food ingredients for the global market, hydrocolloids, calorimetry and food process design, fats and oils, and dairy ingredients.
