Sustainable food processing and preservation technologies have attracted attention due to the growing awareness of climate change, population growth, and human health. More cost-efficient and environmentally friendly food processing and preservation technologies and waste minimization are required to achieve sustainable development in the food sector. Thus, this Special Issue aims to collect original research articles and reviews on novel technologies for sustainable food processing and preservation, including high-pressure processing (HPP), pulsed electric field (PEF), ultrasound (US), ultraviolet (UV), cold plasma treatment, membrane filtration, micro fluidization, nanomaterial-based packages, edible coatings and films, etc. This issue also welcomes research on novel technologies and applications for food waste and by-product processing, pilot-scale technical and economic feasibility studies, and risk management in food processing. Related topics with research advances and applications are also welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. 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. Foods is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
