University College Cork is pleased to announce an International Training Workshop on “Ice Cream Science and Technology”, which will take place in Ireland on 18-20 February 2014. This follows previous successful courses at UCC in 2012, 2010, 2008, 2006 and 2004. This intensive three-day course will provide participants with knowledge of the science and technology of ice cream, including ingredients, processing and quality aspects. Lectures will be complemented with demonstrations and there will be ample opportunity for personal contact with the trainer and industry colleagues. This course, similar to that delivered at the University of Guelph, Canada, is very popular with participants from around the world and places fill very quickly.
