WS 1 – Honey Sensory Analysis: History & Technique
Presented by Raffaele Dall’Olio, Italian Register of Experts in the Sensory Analysis of Honey
Description: In the last century, sensory analysis has developed into a scientific discipline and the most important branch of this discipline is nowadays applied to food. Originating in France in the late ’70s, honey sensory analysis has evolved substantially. In Italy, the science of honey tasting has progressed rapidly with over 30 different single-origin honeys characterized with a specific sensory profile and honey sensory experts officially trained through a National Register managed by the Italian Ministry of Agriculture. Thanks to sensory assessment, the quality of Italian honey has improved and increased in value on the market. Honey is no longer just known as the “noble sweetener” but as food or ingredient in a wide range of products. This workshop will allow participants through practical honey tasting exercises, to become familiar with the basic understanding of honey tasting and honey characterization techniques used to distinguish some single origin European and North American honeys.
Certificate of participation will be awarded to those attending.

WS 6 – How to Create a Successful Beekeeping Development Project
Presented by Dr. Gard Otis, Adjunct Professor, School of Environmental Sciences, University of Guelph
Assistants:
Dr. Gordon Wardell, Megabee Inc.
Katrina Klett, Co-Founder of Elevated Honey Co., M.Sc. student at the Chinese Academy of Science
Description: This workshop is primarily for individuals interested in starting a beekeeping project in a developing country, however the principles that will be explored apply to all beekeeping start-ups. Beekeeping seems like the perfect development activity: it is environmentally friendly, can be done by almost anyone regardless of sex or age, and when done correctly has low start-up costs and generates quick profits for rural farmers. Yet most beekeeping development projects fail for a number of reasons. This workshop will draw on the diverse experiences of the facilitators to explore techniques that contribute to project success.
Certificate of participation will be awarded to those attending.
Wednesday, 11 September, 15:30-17:30 – Room 519A

WS 7 – Honey Crystallization and Defects
Presented by Raffaele Dall’Olio, Italian Register of Experts in the Sensory analysis of Honey
Description: Why does honey crystalize? What are the factors involved? What are the technologies nowadays available to help us understand the crystallization process? How should I handle honey in order to minimize damage to its composition and avoid defects?
The workshop goal is to provide the participants with adequate knowledge of the chemical transformation occurring during honey crystallization at the molecular level. The key aspects occurring during the “honey pipeline”, from the beehive to the jar, proper storage conditions, will be discussed to enable participants to pursue the best honey quality.
The participants will have the possibility to taste honeys with different textures and some defective honeys as well. The workshop will end with a 40’ Q&A open session.

In this workshop we will explore the world of crowd-funding – from how to present your idea to using various crowd-funding methods. Different speakers will share their crowd-funding story and give you some hints and tips to help your crowd-funding campaign become a success!
