For Nestlé drying is an essential step during food processing. Different technologies, such as spray drying, freeze drying or vacuum drying are used to deliver high quality food, like infant formula or instant coffee Nescafé. These technologies are commonly used, however there are still scientific gaps. By sponsoring the Nestlé Drying Technology Award, Nestlé would like to encourage scientists to be even more active in this field and to highlight the industrial importance. (source IDS 2010)
