Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is a pleasure to invite academics and industry professionals to submit manuscripts that are in agreement with this Special Issue focusing on the innovative integration of microbial solutions within the sustainable supply chain of alcoholic beverages. This Special Issue is designed to showcase the latest advancements in microbiology and its application in enhancing the production, quality, and environmental sustainability of alcoholic beverages. Drawing upon a rich expertise in basic and advanced microbiology, food science and technology, as well as the environmental and human health microbiomes, this issue aims to bridge the gap between traditional practices and cutting-edge scientific research correlated with sustainable supply chains. Our editor(s), with a distinguished background in navigating international laboratories and diverse research groups, brings a wealth of knowledge on the correlation between beverage production and sustainable supply chains. This Special Issue not only highlights the practical applications of microbial solutions but also delves into the theoretical underpinnings that make such applications possible. Key themes include the exploration of the interconnections between microbial genotypes and phenotypes, culturing, genomics, transcriptomics, metagenomics, and/or metatranscriptomics to understand and harness the technological potential of bacteria and/or yeasts in the alcoholic fermentation process. These insights are pivotal in innovating the production processes of alcoholic beverages, ensuring they are not only efficient and of high quality but also environmentally sustainable. Thus, contributions are invited from researchers and practitioners who are exploring microbial applications in the alcoholic beverage industry, with a particular interest in sustainable practices. Through this collaborative endeavour, we aim to enrich the discourse on sustainable alcoholic beverage production and open new horizons for research and application in the sustainability field.
