Abstract (summary)

This study was undertaken to establish the bases for recommendations to food processing management to aid it in its long-term planning to satisfy the consumer need for fabricated and synthetic foods in the year 2,000 and beyond.

To accomplish this purpose the writer consulted the literature and a variety of informed governmental sources to determine: (a) the extent to which current world nutritional needs are being met with existing foods; and (b) the factors which, over the last fifty years have been primarily responsible for the development of today's fabricated and synthetic foods.

Beyond this, the writer attempted to project the trend developed over the past fifty years to the year 2,000, and to use the data so developed to provide the basis for recommendations designed to aid food processing management in its planning for organization to optimally meet the projected needs. To acquire data for this element of the study the writer, through a 25 item questionnaire, solicited informed opinion from authoritative figures in government, food-processing corporations and academia. These data, where appropriate, were amplified by a series of interviews in depth with appropriate members of the responding groups. The data indicated necessity for food processing management to direct its attention to a number of areas covering the range of food processing technology and marketing. The writer views the future with optimism, on the assumption that a synergistic relationship between government and food processing management will facilitate the answers to many of the real problems confronting that management.
