Research Activities

In order to further develop the high pressure technology, studies on high pressure biochemistry and food science are required. Since 1988, the author has organized five annual symposia on the uses of high pressure processing in food. At present, number of researchers working in this area is growing in universities, government institutions and industries (5-10).

In July, 1989, The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries in Japan founded the Association of High Pressure Application in Food Industry. The Association included 10 food companies and 7 equipment companies and continued until March, 1993. The First Joint Meeting of Japan and the European Community (EC) on High Pressure Biotechnology was held at La Grande Motte in France in September, 1992, and the First Taiwan Symposium on the High Pressure Technology for Food Science was held at Taichung in Taiwan in April, 1993. The First International Congress on High Pressure Bioscience and Biotechnology will be held at Kyoto, Japan, in November, 1995.
