IUFoST Mycotoxin Management Pre-Congress Meeting

 

Mycotoxin Management Network for Food Security and Safety (M2Net)

August 4th, 2012 BRAZIL

 

Organized by:

Dr. Walter Spiess- IUFoST Food Security Task Force

Dr. Manjeet Chinnan & Dr. Anna V.A. Resurreccion - University of Georgia-Global Peanut     Product Processing and Marketing Team (UGA.GP3MT)

 

Sponsored by:

IUFoST Food Security Task Force

University of Georgia-Global Peanut Product Processing and Marketing Team (UGA.GP3MT)

Peanut Collaborative Research Support Program (PCRSP)

 

Scientists from IUFoST held a 1-day pre-conference meeting to discuss the current issues in mycotoxin management. The primary goal of the meeting was to create a network for partners working on and or interested in this important topic in food security around the world.

Globally communities are under severe food crisis. Developing countries are struggling to simultaneously increase production and meet international quality standards for food safety. When food is scarce, all food is consumed albeit of poor or unsafe quality. Mycotoxins affect many of the staple food crops; when present these toxins can lead to severe health problems like stunting, cancer, and immune suppression. These toxins can persist along the entire food value chain.

 

IUFoST is leading the way in bringing together scientists to discuss, analyze and create approaches tools and methods for the management of Mycotoxins. Food scientists can play a crucial role in creating safe food, reducing costs, and increasing food security.

Anna V. A. Resurreccion's insight:

I was one of the organizers of this workshop and served as facilitator.  I led the USAID funded project in the Philippines that developed this processing technology, which was subsequently published in the Journal of Food Protection and a Monograph, both of which are featured on this curated site.  

   

The beauty of the technology is that it is applicable for use throughout the industry and all peanut processing plants that cannot afford expensive electronic sorters or their maintainance. Small-, medium- and micro-industries, including those at the farm and village level, as well as households can effectively remove aflatoxin contaminated kernels so that the rew material used for processing peanut products with below 4 ppb, the EC limit in peanut products.

Anna V. A. Resurreccion's insight:
RSR International Group, LLCAflatoxins are found in corn, rice, coconut, peanuts and other food sources. They cause hepatocellular carcinoma, growth stunting in children and immunosuppression. 4.5 billion people, globally, are at risk of exposure (CDC). Aflatoxins are one of the many Mycotoxins found in food. I and my research team in the Philippines developed the ONLY effective technology to remove aflatoxin from processed peanut products, for small and medium sized companies that cannot afford electronic sorters. We transferred the technology to at least 10 companies in the Philippines. We then scaled up and transferred the technology in Thailand, nation-wide, in Uganda (east Africa), Ghana (west Africa) and now in Southern Africa, beginning with one country and continuing to two others in the region. I am searching for funds to continue to scale up the technology transfer and adoption, in light of serious food insecurity today that affects 1.5 billion people (FAO) and a predicted population of 9 billion in 2030. Pictured here is part of a training program in Africa that I helped to plan, implement and conduct on September 9-11,2013.

Dr. Anna Resurreccion & GP3MT-- Assist Entrpreneurs in Product R&D and Commercialization

Dr. Anna Resurreccion & GP3MT-- Assist Entrpreneurs in Product R&D and Commercialization | Anna V.A. Resurreccion, Ph.D., CFS  International Food Security, Food Product-Process Development and Innovation, Food Business Development | Scoop.it

 

A success story for USAID-funded Peanut CRSP in the Philippines. 

 

The Global Peanut Product, Processing and Marketing Team (GP3MT) allows small and medium enterprises to access knowledge and technologies developed by Universities and Government Research Institutions, globally.  

   

An approach developed by Dr. Resurreccion with co-workers in the US and Philippines, involves identification and early engagement of industry partners at the initial stages.  The public-private partnerships formed are the key to "fast tracking" the development and commercialization of food products.

 

GP3MT empowers smallholder farmers through associations/enterprises in value chain activities.

GP3MT has provided capacity building for successful development of women-owned business enterprises in Asia and Africa. 

 

One example is Jennilyn Antonio who was an assembly plant worker involved in micro-scale peanut paste preparation as a source of secondary income for her family.  She is currently a successful entrepreneur who produces peanut butter distributed and sold at supermarket and bakery chains, nationwide, in the Philippines.

 

The GP3M Team is composed of Dr. Anna Resurreccion, Distinguished Research Professor, a food scientist and technologist with a Masters degree in Nutrition; Dr. Manjeet Chinnan, Professor Emeritus,  an engineer with expertise in food process development; and Dr. Wojciech Florkowski, Professor, an economist.   

 

GP3MT is based in the University of Georgia.

Peanut Collaborative Research Support Program (Peanut CRSP) is funded through the US agency for International Development (USAID).

Yu Bixun's curator insight, June 26, 2013 11:40 PM

I can see that USAID-funded Peanut CRSP in the Philippines is successful in their business. I can also see that the reason for the success is because of Dr. Resurreccion and the co-workers being involved in early identification and engagement of industry partnership. I think that this form of early partnership is the key in fast tracking in development and commercialization of food products which leads to the success of the business. I wonder if companies and business involve in early engagement of industry partnership are able to bring benefits to the companies and be successful.

Xavier Yee's curator insight, June 28, 2013 2:09 AM

From this article, I can see that USAID-funded Peanut CRSP in the Philippines is very successful in their business of the peanut butter, as Dr. Resurreccion and the co-workers are involved in a early identification and engagement of industry partnership. I think that early partnership is their key to fast tracking in development and commercialization of food products which lead to their success. I wonder if this actually works for all companies.

The story of Ehje, Peanut Butter Manufacturer-- Technology transfer via USAID Peanut CRSP

The story of Ehje, Peanut Butter Manufacturer--  Technology transfer via USAID Peanut CRSP | Anna V.A. Resurreccion, Ph.D., CFS  International Food Security, Food Product-Process Development and Innovation, Food Business Development | Scoop.it

 

 

I met Ehje at a training course held as an activity in a USAID funded Peanut Collaborative  Research Program (CRSP) project that I led in the Philippines for 11 years until 2007. She attended and brought with her a 4 oz. plastic container of peanut butter, and approached me during a coffee break to ask for an evaluation of her product. Litlle did I know then that her family had difficulty making ends meet, and that a she had scraped whatever means she had to try to attend our course--on peanut processing. 

 

A few years have passed since that fateful day. This tiny, deterined  lady has, through a vison of success, hard work, some micro-financing, and a ton of common sense, graduated from being a 1 Kg per week casual preparer of peanut paste, to sell to her assembly line co-workers, to a tons per day peanut processor marketing her products to superrmarket and bakery chains nationwide, in the Philippines.

 

Ehje's peanut butter is one of the highest quality peanut butters being marketed in Manila.  She has expanded her operations several times but growth has necessitated a move to a  brand new processing plant. 

 

It is the success stories of people like Ehje that make my hard work, the tremendous amount of time  and effort worthwhile. I felt a sense of of pride when Ehje and her husband and business partner Boyong came to see me in Makati, to relate the tremendous transformation in their lives. She sends me videoclips, news stories as you read above, eternally grateful for the knowledge and advice she has obtained.  I cannot help but smile when out of the blue, Ehje is there chatting with me on Facebook, always with a technical question on peanut processing. Ehje will forever be my student, as I am forever her teacher.

Hao Yu Li's curator insight, July 1, 2013 7:58 AM

We are always envious of other's achievement and success, without knowing what they have paid for it. They are always very hard-working and would spend much time on their work. They live with their work and finally succeed. They always begin with hardship and many problems with their jobs and lives. Only due to their presistence and personality of never giving up do they finally succeed. It is never impossible to be successful as long as you put your effort and heart into in.

Scientists from IUFoST held a 1-day pre-conference meeting to discuss the current issues in mycotoxin management. The primary goal of the meeting was to create a network for partners working on and or interested in this important topic in food security around the world.

Globally communities are under severe food crisis. Developing countries are struggling to simultaneously increase production and meet international quality standards for food safety. When food is scarce, all food is consumed albeit of poor or unsafe quality. Mycotoxins affect many of the staple food crops; when present these toxins can lead to severe health problems like stunting, cancer, and immune suppression. These toxins can persist along the entire food value chain.

 

IUFoST is leading the way in bringing together scientists to discuss, analyze and create approaches tools and methods for the management of Mycotoxins. Food scientists can play a crucial role in creating safe food, reducing costs, and increasing food security.
