The Symposium on the Role and Application of Food Science and Technology in Industrialized Countries was held September 15 17, 1981 in Helsinki Espoo, Finland under the patronage of the International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST) and the Organization for Economic Co operation and Development (OECD).In this publication the opening and plenary papers as well as the reports of the three workshops on Food Processing and Manufacturing Food Wholesaling and Retailing, and Catering/ Foodservice Industry are published.In the opening lectures the aims of the Symposium are described.The plenary papers contain the expert opinions of the speakers on the various issues of the Symposium.The workshop reports analyze the subject matter in terms of the three major sectors of the food economy, and introduce the recommendations printed in italics.The papers contain opinions and recommendations of internationally highly competent experts and expert groups and are thus a good guideline for further efforts and subsequent measures.The organizers and the editors hope that this publication would serve national and international expert and administration bodies, the various food sectors and companies, and educational and research institutions in their tasks when developing strategies and programs for the 1980's.This publication will be distributed to the member countries of OECD, to the member associations of IUFoST and broadly to the scientific and professional bodies interested in food technology and economy.
