Periodic Reporting for period 1 - FRESHDETECT (FRESHDETECT – food safety – fast and reliable)
Período documentado: 2018-08-01 hasta 2019-07-31
The current determination of total microbial count in laboratories outlined by §64 of the LFGB (German Food and Feed Code) takes about 72 hours to properly determine contamination. This renders impossible any process control that is based on food contamination. The FreshDetect hand-held device needs only 5-10 sec. for the same process, is much less costly and does not need scientific trained operators or lab technician. Starting with pork meat and having analysed the top 10 food processing European countries, FreshDetect’s market potential is 284,000 devices with a market volume of € 3.5 billion. The target users are slaughterhouses, cutting plants, meat processing companies, retailers, wholesalers and butchers. The goal of the project is to bring our current prototype (TRL7) to business success with commercialization to these users.
