Role and Contribution

Participant 1 is the General Manager of the whole project and will lead WP3 and WP4. Participant 1contributes to the following main objectives of the project:

  • Modelling the effect of food structure, microbial interactions and dynamic storage conditions on meat pathogens and spoilage bacteria.
  • Combination of validated pathogen growth models with data on prevalence/concentration, dose response and chill chain conditions for risk assessment with and without SMAS application.
  • Development, modelling and optimization of TTI with accuracy to monitor microbiological safety of meat products.
  • Development of SMAS into a user-friendly computer software.
  • Evaluation of the applicability and effectiveness of SMAS in real conditions of meat distribution. Assessment of the industry acceptance of the TTI and the concept of chill chain management.
  • Evaluation of European consumer attitude on use of TTI and correlation to quality.
