Project Details


Keeping ready-to-eat foods at too high temperatures in the home of elderly people can result in fatal infections with Listeria monocytogenes.

The Danish Ellab Fondation has granted DKK 100,000 for mapping of typical transport and storage conditions (times and temperatures) for ready-to-eat foods in order to look into this. Modelling techniques applying predictive microbial models and quantitative risk assessment will be used.
