Project sets out to provide effective virus control measures for the food industry

28 June 2018

Campden BRI is inviting companies to join a project which aims to provide solutions for effective virus control measures for the food industry and to help increase information about the control measures needed to reduce or eliminate hazards produced by foodborne viruses than for bacterial pathogens. 

The project will be of interest to processors and retailers of any foods which may be handled and could become contaminated with enteric viruses. It will also be relevant to producers, suppliers, processors and retailers involved in the manufacture and sale of at-risk foods which may be spray irrigated, such as salad vegetables and berry fruits.

The project will aim to provide insight on an evolving data set regarding heat treatments suitable for control of viruses in foods, enabling informed risk management strategies. it will also provide a greater understanding of water treatments that can be used to control viruses to help primary producers decide the most effective treatment of irrigation water when potable water is not used or is not available.

The project is planned to start on 1st November 2018 and will last for one year. Companies interested in participating need to register their interest by Tuesday 31st July to martin.dagostino@campdenbri.co.uk.
