NOVEL TOOLS FOR FOOD SAFETY MANAGEMENT BASED ON QMRA WITH A ROBUST MODELLING OF UNNOVEL TOOLS FOR FOOD SAFETY MANAGEMENT APPLYING QMRA WITH ROBUST MODELLING OF UNCERTAINTY AND VARIABILITY: FANTASTICAL

Project description

Food safety and consumer protection

Although European regulations and knowledge related to food safety are advanced, consumers are not yet fully protected against foodborne diseases. The question of how to boost food safety is a concern for society, the health sector and the food industry. Better understanding of the risks to enrich knowledge in the food market is instrumental. Quantitative microbiological risk analysis (QMRA) can help estimate the dangers that emanate from the exposure to food potentially containing pathogenic microorganisms or toxins. This topic is especially challenging due to the inherent variability of microorganisms and consumers. The EU-funded project FANTASTICAL will develop QMRA applications that can be applied by institutions and the food industry to increase consumer protection.
