Decontamination with Ice

Project description

Cooling for killing: novel eco-friendly solution eradicates foodborne pathogens

Diarrhoeal diseases are the most common illnesses resulting from unsafe food. The burden of foodborne diseases, including campylobacteriosis, is significant. In Europe, more than nine million people are infected by Campylobacter or other food bacteria every year. The poultry sector, the fastest growing meat sector today, is struggling to prevent foodborne diseases. The EU-funded ChillBact project will bring to market a new solution that can eliminate Campylobacter on chicken skin using water and ice (instead of disinfectant chemicals, pharmaceuticals and soaps). Developed by Iceland’s ThorIce, the new water–ice bacteria decontamination and chilling method will prepare to meet the expected rise in market demand. The ultimate aim is for the solution to be adopted by the major equipment suppliers in the industry.
