The Research and Development (R&D) Division in the food industry holds a crucial role in the creation of new food products and addressing any issues related to existing ones. The department becomes particularly active when quality and safety problems arise with food products, when new competitors enter the market, or when similar products are developed. The R&D Division is often considered the backbone of the company to ensure its continued growth. To allow the R&D Department to perform optimally, adequate literature support is imperative. Scientific journals and research publication outputs can serve as a source of inspiration and reference material in solving problems in the food industry.
To address the need for literature, especially for practitioners in the food industry, the Department of Food Science and Technology at Bogor Agricultural University (IPB University), in collaboration with the Indonesian Food and Beverage Producers Association (GAPMMI), the South East Food and Agricultural Science and Technology (SEAFAST) Center, and the Indonesian Food Technologists Association (PATPI), has published open access "Jurnal Mutu Pangan" or "Indonesian Journal of Food Quality". The first journal edition was published in April 2014. The journal has been accredited by the Directorate General of Higher Education (DGHE) in the Republic of Indonesia since 2018, and reaccredited in 2022 (newly classified as SINTA 3, No. 225/E/KPT/2022).
"Jurnal Mutu Pangan" is published twice a year, in April and October, and covers manuscripts of research results and brief communications relevant to the needs of practitioners in the food industry. This includes articles on the development of methods and products, food processing technology, policy studies, food regulation, risk analysis, quality system design, food security, business design, feasibility studies, as well as quality, nutrition, and health. Each article provides a concise overview of the practical applications of the research results and their potential to be used in the food industry.
