Despite the effectivity of control measures in the past decade, domestic pork was estimated to be the most important food source for salmonellosis in Denmark in 2014 (Anonymous 2015). Therefore, there is a continued focus on the identification of effective intervention measures in the pig and pork production chain. In this paper, an overview will be given of the results of some research projects that have been performed at the National Food Institute to study the potentials of interventions. In these projects, the specific objective was to estimate the effectivity in terms of reduction of the risk of salmonellosis for the Danish population. The results of these projects illustrate how quantitative microbiological risk assessments (QMRAs) can be applied to support the control of Salmonella in pork.
