After the domestication of the dairy animals and first using milk as a food, human beings accidentally discovered that the shelf life of nutrients in milk could be prolonged by fermentation. From the moment when human beings visualized the benefits of the fermentation of milk, in milk processing it has become the key not only in producing dairy products with noticeably longer shelf lives, but also producing them with much better sensorial, nutrient, functional, health-beneficial and safety characteristics. In the future, under pressure from modern conscious consumers, the market will request that dairy scientists and the dairy industry reduce the old-fashioned utilization of different chemicals to prolong shelf life and ensure the quality and safety of dairy products. Instead, microbiology in the dairy sector, particularly thanks to fermentation, will offer endless possibilities of using lactic acid bacteria and other daily discovered microbes present and available in nature to fulfil different requirements which modern science and the dairy industry face, and will face in the future as well.

For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Fermentation is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
