The Journal is envisaged as the major platform for communicating advances in the post-harvest science, engineering and technology aspects of food and beverage products to researchers, academicians, industry as well as students of food and beverage science and technology. This peer reviewed Journal publishes novel and high quality reviews, original research and short communications covering the wide range of post-harvest related science, engineering and technological aspects of foods, food products and related byproducts with special emphasis on the basic and applied research findings that will impact the quality, safety and/or shelf life of fresh or processed food products including findings that will help improvise the efficiency of a process, effective utilization of by-products or wastes resulting from food processing operations. Manuscripts dealing with pre-harvest aspects will only be considered if the work clearly indicates the relevance to post-harvest practices and processing that will directly impact the safety, quality or shelf life of the food and beverage or food products. Critical reviews on new perspectives in food handling and processing, innovative and emerging technologies and trends and future research in food products and food industry byproducts are also welcome. The Journal also publishes book reviews relevant to science, technology and engineering aspects of food or food products.
