Future directions in food processing research in the Riverina region


This workshop was organised by the Riverina Regional Development Board, the Wagga Wagga City Council and Charles Sturt University to coincide with negotiations to encourage the CSIRO Division of Food Processing to relocate to Wagga Wagga.

The papers represent a sample of the research and development activities related to food processing in the Riverina region, the major food production area in Australia.
