Sustainable Food Processing, a specialty section of Frontiers in Sustainable Food Systems, publishes original, peer reviewed research on the latest technological developments in the food industry with a specific focus on increasing sustainability in food supply chains.
Only by addressing innovation will it be possible for the food industry to answer to the higher expectations and demand from consumers and achieve sustainability. To do so, it will be necessary to evolve technologies that provide improved food products for human health and well-being, while minimizing environmental impact- such that the circular economy becomes a reality in food (and industrial) processing. Achieving sustainability in this sector requires more efficient and environmentally-friendly food processing technologies together with waste minimization, including recovery and incorporation of food by-products in the food processing chain, while complying with extremely rigorous food safety challenges.
The Sustainable Food Processing section welcomes high quality and original contributions on novel technologies for sustainable food processing and preservation. The section also welcomes research that brings a sustainability focus to functional foods, active and functional packaging, process integration in food processing, novel technologies for food waste and by-product processing and production of bioactives and risk management in food processing.

Sustainable Food Processing welcomes submissions of the following article types: Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Policy and Practice Reviews, Policy Brief, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Sustainable Food Processing, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Sustainable Food Processing will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Sustainable Food Systems.
