The Conference will take place in Fruit Attraction, one of the most prestigious Fresh Produce Exhibition of Europe, in Madrid (Spain) from October 17th to 20th, 2017. The Conference is a joint initiative of the Departments of Food Science of University Miguel Hernández (Alicante, Spain) and CEBAS-CSIC (Murcia, Spain).

The conference aims to facilitate communication and discussion related to all aspects of postharvest quality, from breeding, to production and postharvest handling. There will be focused sessions to address key problems related to physiology and physiological disorders, metabolomics for quality, plant microbiota from safety to biocontrol as well as postharvest storage (CA and MA), packaging and innovations to reduce postharvest losses. There is also a visit tour to Fruit Attraction pavilions. The conference will provide the opportunity for scientists, professionals and students to present their latest findings and promote the exchange of ideas.
