DUBLIN, Aug. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The “Innovative Food Processing Technologies” book from Elsevier Science and Technology has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Food process engineering, a branch of both food science and chemical engineering, has evolved over the years since its inception and still is a rapidly changing discipline. While traditionally the main objective of food process engineering was preservation and stabilization, the focus today has shifted to enhance health aspects, flavour and taste, nutrition, sustainable production, food security and also to ensure more diversity for the increasing demand of consumers.

The food industry is becoming increasingly competitive and dynamic, and strives to develop high quality, freshly prepared food products. To achieve this objective, food manufacturers are today presented with a growing array of new technologies that have the potential to improve, or replace, conventional processing technologies, to deliver higher quality and better consumer targeted food products, which meet many, if not all, of the demands of the modern consumer. These new, or innovative, technologies are in various stages of development, including some still at the R&D stage, and others that have been commercialised as alternatives to conventional processing technologies.

Food process engineering comprises a series of unit operations traditionally applied in the food industry. One major component of these operations relates to the application of heat, directly or indirectly, to provide foods free from pathogenic microorganisms, but also to enhance or intensify other processes, such as extraction, separation or modification of components. The last three decades have also witnessed the advent and adaptation of several operations, processes, and techniques aimed at producing high quality foods, with minimum alteration of sensory and nutritive properties. Some of these innovative technologies have significantly reduced the thermal component in food processing, offering alternative non-thermal methods.

“Food Processing Technologies: A Comprehensive Review” covers the latest advances in innovative and non-thermal processing, such as high pressure, pulsed electric fields, radio frequency, high intensity pulsed light, ultrasound, irradiation and new hurdle technology. Each section will have an introductory article covering the basic principles and applications of each technology, and in-depth articles covering the currently available equipment (and/or the current state of development), food quality and safety, application to various sectors, food laws and regulations, consumer acceptance, advancements and future scope. It will also contain case studies and examples to illustrate state-of-the-art applications. Each section will serve as an excellent reference to food industry professionals involved in the processing of a wide range of food categories, e.g., meat, seafood, beverage, dairy, eggs, fruits and vegetable products, spices, herbs among others.

Key features:

  • Comprehensive: Offering readers a ‘one-stop’, comprehensive resource for access to a wealth of information to fully support their research and activities in this area and a critical insight into the future direction of the field
  • Clearly structured: Meticulously organized, with case studies, examples and illustrations of state-of-the-art applications for each processing technology, it is the ideal resource for students, researchers and professionals to find relevant information quickly and easily and understand how new and emerging technologies may be commercialized
  • Interdisciplinary: Chapters written by academics and practitioners from various fields and regions will ensure that the knowledge within is easily understood by and applicable to a large audience
  • Multimedia Features: Hyperlinked references and further readings, cross-references and widgets will allow readers to easily navigate a wealth of information, as well as the inclusion of various multimedia tools Inclusion in the Reference Module in Food Science will ensure that content remains perpetually up-to-date, allowing readers to access the latest authoritative information immediately

Key Topics Covered:

1. High Pressure Processing (High Hydrostatic Pressure Processing)
2. Pulsed Electric (and possibly Pulsed Magnetic) Field Processing
3. Ultrasound and Megasonics Processing
4. Hydrodynamic Pressure Processing (including high pressure homogenization and shockwave processing)

NEW YORK, Nov. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — WeissLaw LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the board of directors of BMC Stock Holdings, Inc. (“BMCH” or the “Company”) (NYSE: BMCH) in connection with the proposed acquisition of the Company by Builders FirstSource, Inc. (“BLDR”) (NASDAQ: BLDR).  Under the terms of the merger agreement, BMCH stockholders will receive 1.3125 BLDR shares for each share of BMCH common stock they own, representing implied per-share merger consideration of $48.68 based upon BLDR’s November 24, 2020 closing price of $37.09.  At closing, BMCH’s current stockholders will only own a 43% stake in the combined company.

If you own BMCH shares and wish to discuss this investigation or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, visit our website:

[email protected]

WeissLaw is investigating whether BMCH’s management and the board may have artificially revised BMCH’s financial projections downward in order to make the proposed transaction appear more favorable to BMCH stockholders than it truly is.  Despite having a pre-existing set of long-term projections developed by management and relied upon by the board during the sales process, BMCH created a new, significantly revised set of financial projections in apparent response to BLDR’s June 2020 revised all-stock acquisition proposal (“July Projections”).  This occurred little more than a month before the BMCH board agreed to the proposed merger, and seems wholly inconsistent with the Company’s recent unprecedented financial performance.  To make matters worse, the earlier set of projections, the assumptions underlying those projections, and the basis for the significant revision of the July Projections is either wholly omitted or inadequately disclosed to BMCH shareholders.  Without disclosure of the Company’s earlier long-term projections or qualitative discussion describing how the long-term projections were changed in July, BMCH stockholders have no way to assess whether the revision was proper in light of the Company’s record-setting second quarter financial results.

Given these facts, WeissLaw is concerned whether the board acted in the best interest of BMCH’s public stockholders in agreeing to the proposed transaction and whether the exchange ratio is fair to the Company’s public stockholders, and whether all information concerning the process leading to the proposed transaction and valuation of the Company on a standalone basis has been fully and fairly disclosed. 

WeissLaw LLP has litigated hundreds of stockholder class and derivative actions for violations of corporate and fiduciary duties.  We have recovered over a billion dollars for defrauded clients and obtained important corporate governance relief in many of these cases.  If you have information or would like legal advice concerning possible corporate wrongdoing (including insider trading, waste of corporate assets, accounting fraud, or materially misleading information), consumer fraud (including false advertising, defective products, or other deceptive business practices), or anti-trust violations, please email us at [email protected]
