WP2: HAZARD CONTROL AND MITIGATION

WP2 will develop a prototype of a decision support system for hazard control (HC DSS) and set preservation technologies/ mitigation strategies for enhancing the food safety management throughout the four infant food chains chosen as case studies from raw materials to consumer. This will be done by i) quantifying the fate of key chemicals and the behavior of microbiological hazards along the four infant food chains chosen as case studies, ii) setting and assessing the ability of emerging processing and preservation technologies (HPP, PCD, RD) to control pathogens at least as efficiently as classical technologies while mitigating key heat-sensitive contaminants, iii) setting efficient monitoring and sampling strategies at operational (IFC) and governmental (FSA) level to enhance the effectiveness of food safety management options. The HC DSS prototype will be upgraded based on the relevant additional data, technologies and management solutions provided by the SAFFI Chinese mirror project.,

Objectives

The aim of WP2 is to set preservation technologies / mitigation strategies for enhancing the food safety management throughout the four infant food chains chosen as case studies from raw materials to consumer and to develop a prototype of a decision support system for hazard control (HC DSS). Specific objectives include: i) to quantify the fate of key chemicals (degradation, generation, migration) and the behaviour of microbiological hazards (growth, inhibition, inactivation) along the four infant food chains; ii) to set and validate emerging processing and preservation technologies to control key contaminants and pathogens as efficiently as classical technologies; iii) to set efficient monitoring and sampling strategies at operational (IFC) and governmental (FSA) level to enhance the effectiveness of food safety management options.
