Kaye Innovation Awards 2020

Congratulations to Prof. Amos Nussinovitch, delegate from Israel at the EuChemS Food Chemistry Division, for receiving this prestigious award!

Prof. Amos Nussinovitch and his team have been working on the topic of edible films and coatings for the past 30 years, developing several novel and innovative coating families and the technologies to apply them. Such coatings have attracted commercial interest from industry and agricultural bodies, mostly due to the many advantages of its large-scale application, namely shelf life extension, extensive decreases in weight loss, extension of market availability for export, prevention of insect infestation, improved appearance/gloss, and even the replacement of plastic packaging materials with biodegradable alternatives.
The 1st prize has been awarded to Prof. Nussinovitch for his work on developing edible protective films to extend postharvest shelf life of fresh and processed fruit and vegetables. For more information see: https://en.hafakulta.agri.huji.ac.il/news/kaye-innovation-award-prof-amos-nussinovitch
