The "Solar Food Processing & Conservation" project, launched by ISES four years ago, aimed to develop efficient methods of solar food processing and to extend the use of this technology (see Phase I and II). The focus of this third phase was an international conference of solar food processing, which took place in January 2009 in Indore, India.
