The C-SNIPER project aims to reduce the prevalence of Campylobacter in poultry through an innovative, efficient and non-antibiotic based mitigation strategy that can be integrated into existing hygiene protocols. Specifically, this activity will develop a bacteriophage-based solution to be used as natural antimicrobial in the farm (pre-harvest), slaughter and/or processing facilities (post-harvest). This development will improve the safety of poultry meat, reducing thereby the incidence of poultry-borne food poisoning, without impacting on animal welfare.
The main scope of SHEALTHY project is to assess and develop an optimal combination of non-thermal sanitization, preservation and stabilization methods to improve the quality and the shelf life of fresh adn healthy food.
underPRESSURE project will scale-up a technological solution for producing “high” viscosity fat-based products addressing these consumer demands. Safe foods with lower fat content (fat reduction >30%) and reduced use of additives will be developed, maintaining or even improving their sensory characteristics and stability respect to full-fat conventional references. In order to assure a consumer driven project, consumers will be engaged from the creation to the validation of these food products, ensuring to meet their expectations.
This project aims at gaining consumer trust through improving the transparency of the supply chain using rapid-reactive and proactive risk management using a combination of technologies such as predictive analytics and multi-analytical tests.
The project will evolve existing nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technology to foster the development of a testing service that distinguishes organic from conventional milk, at all supply chain levels (farm, preproduction, retail), thus enhancing credibility of the dairy supply chain and consumer trust on the final product. The objectives will be achieved via farm and retail surveys across UK and Finland and the service will be calibrated for different countries, seasons, and supply chain levels. The service will include a protocol which can be adopted by milk recording authorities, food authentication laboratories, government bodies, and value-added companies which use organic milk as a key ingredient.
Low Energy Electron Beam (LEEB)
The food sector is in urgent need of gentle microbial inactivation technologies without application of heat that (i) deliver the required safety, (ii) do not change the naturalness of the food, and (iii) are cost efficient and sustainable. This project will bring to the market a new food-safety technology, LEEB (Low-Energy Electron Beam) to tackle this unsolved public health threat. LEEB will deliver to consumers fresh, safe and high quality plant-based ingredients.
