1 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria DEHYDRATION OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLES Tunis (Tunisia), April 2003 DEHYDRATION OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLES: THE ITALIAN PICTURE Giancarlo Colelli IMPROVED QUALITY MANAGEMENT IN THE EURO-MEDITERRANEAN FRUITS AND VEGETABLES PROCESSING INDUSTRY

2 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria GENERAL MAIN CROPS INTENDED FOR DRYING COMPANIES TECHNOLOGY AND MANIFACTURERS R&D ON DEHYDRATION

3 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria general THE INDUSTRY OF DEHYDRATION OF FRUIT AND VEGETABLES IN ITALY IS NOT VERY IMPORTANT IN TERMS OF OUTPUT AND IN TERMS OF LABOR FORCE INVOLVED HOWEVER, INCREASING DEMAND OF HIGH QUALITY DEHYDRATED PRODUCTS IS SETTING ON NEW INTEREST IN THIS SECTOR

4 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria general ISTAT (Government Statistics Institute) HAVE NO OFFICIAL DATA ON PRODUCTION AND TRADE OF DEHYDRATED PRODUCTS AIIPA FEW DATA COULD BE GATHERED THROUGH AIIPA (Association of Food Industry Enterprises) AND ANEIOA (Association of Fruit & Vegetables Exporters)

5 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria general DEHYDRATED FRUIT & VEGETABLES REPRESENT A VERY BROAD GROUPING TYPE OF CROP (fruit, vegetables, nuts) PHYSICAL FORM (powder, flakes, halves, …) Aw (dry, IMF) TECHNOLOGY (convective-, spray-, freeze drying, …) DESTINATION (further processing, final consumption) PRODUCTION SITE (farm, industrial facility, …)

6 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria (Data from AIIPA/AIFLD) main crops

7 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria main crops (Data from AIIPA/AIFLD) ALMOST ALL PRODUCTION IS USED FOR FURTHER PROCESSING

8 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria main crops PRODUCTION OF SUN- OR OVEN-DRIED TOMATO HALVES IS STILL IMPORTANT AND INCREASING

9 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria IN ADDITION TO APPLES OTHER FRUITS ARE USED FOR DEHYDRATION, ALTHOUGH PRODUCTION IS MARGINAL main crops MORE THAN 90% OF THE INTERNAL CONSUMPTION IS IMPORTED

10 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria DRIED FRUIT CONSUMPTION (TOTAL OF 170,000,000 EURO FOR 2001) BY LARGE EXCEEDS INTERNAL PRODUCTION main crops (Data from ANEIOA)

11 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria main crops FOR SOME NUTS INTERNAL PRODUCTION IS SIGNIFICANT TO CONSUPTION (2001) (Data from ANEIOA)

12 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria main crops IMPORT/EXPORT OF DRIED PRODUCT (2001) (Data from ANEIOA)

13 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria DRIED APPLE EXPORT BY DESTINATION COUNTRY (2001) main crops (Data from ANEIOA)

14 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria companies AIIPA PRESENTLY LISTS 5 COMPANIES IN THE SECTION DRIED FRUITS & VEGETABLES ANEIOA PRESENTLY LISTS 40 COMPANIES IN THE SECTION DRIED FRUITS & VEGETABLES AS FOR DATA ON PRODUCTION AND TRADE, DATA ON COMPANIES ARE RATHER FUZZY ON-FARM PRODUCTION IS NOT INCLUDED

15 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria companies MAIN TRADEMARKS ACTIVITY IS NOT LIMITED TO DRY PRODUCTS ONLY

16 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria technology & manufacturers APPLIED TECHNOLOGY DEPENDS ON THE PRODUCT MOSTLY CONVECTIVE AIR-DRYING FOR FRUIT (HALVES, SLICES, CUBES) IN CABINET OR IN TUNNEL MOSTLY DRUM- AND SPRY-DRYING FOR VEGETABLE POWDERS FREEZE-DRYING FOR HIGH-QUALITY PRODUCTS MW/RF SYSTEMS ARE RARELY USED COMMERCIALLY OSMO-DEHYDRATION FOR IMF (COMBINED) SUN-DRYING STILL WIDELY USED (in the south)

17 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria technology & manufacturers AN ON-LINE SEARCH ON THE YELLOW PAGES YIELDED 96 DRYING MACHINERY MANUFACTURERS SME USING THEIR OWN KNOW-HOW EQUIPMENTS NOT ONLY FOR FOOD APPLICATIONS (WOOD, CATTLE-FEED, SLUDGES, GAS, PAINTS, …) STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY IN ALL APPLICATIONS

18 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria technology & manufacturers MAIN TRADEMARKS ONLY FEW OF THEM ARE SPECIALIZED FOR FOOD- DRYING APPLICATION

19 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria R&D on dehydration RECENT INTEREST ON HIGH QUALITY PRODUCT HAVE TRIGGERED NEW R&D PROGRAMS ON DEHYDRATION TECHNOLOGY (PROCESS, PRODUCTS, EQUIPMENTS) INNOVATION IN DEHYDRATION PROCESSES WAS ONE OF THE 12 TOPICS OF LAST NATIONAL RESEARCH PLAN ON FOOD TECHNOLOGY OTHER PROJECTS HAVE BEEN FUNDED BY REGIONAL GOVERNMENTS AND EU PROGRAMS

20 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria R&D on dehydration MAIN RESEARCH TOPICS ON DEHYDRATION OPTIMIZATION OF PROCESSES FOR MAX QUALITY AND MIN HEAT DAMAGE (HEAT & MASS TRANSFER MODELLING) USE OF INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES (RF/MW, DEHYDRO-FREEZING) COMBINING TECHNOLOGIES NEW PRODUCTS (IMF) EQUIPMENT OPTIMIZATION (AUTOMATION, ENERGY SAVING, MAKE-IT-SMALL)

21 Università degli Studi di Foggia, Italy Laboratorio di Impianti per le Industrie Alimentari PASTIS CNRSM, Brindisi – Italy Area Materiali e Processi per lAgroindustria thanks for your kind attention!
