New projects

Our “project” groups :

Workgroups are often the result of our themed commissions, and may be created to meet a specific need expressed by our members (in industry or research) and to work together to solve a mutual problem. 5 groups are currently coordinated by the cluster or its sector manager.

“Baked Goods” workgroup

Managed by the Pays de Loire Area Manager and the PAO (Pôle Agronomique Ouest), this workgroup was formed in 2008 and brings together members of industry and the research community in the baked goods sector. The group works on various issues: nutritional profiles, new contaminants, energy savings in ovens, glycemic index, and aroma quality, etc.
