The objective of the «PathoSeq» project is to prepare Norwegian food industry for the challenges and possibilities of using modern DNA sequencing technologies for surveillance and control of foodborne pathogenic bacteria. The focus is on Listeria monocytogenes, considered the largest food safety challenge in Norwegian food processing industry.
Romanian and Norwegian scientists join forces to develop new innovative food packaging biomaterials with antimicrobial and antioxidant properties.
The pathogen pilot plant is Europe's first high-security processing facility. Here, researchers study life-threatening bacteria like Listeria monocytogenes and Escherichia coli (EHEC) in a realistic processing environment, to prevent serious food poisoning.
Healthy, tasty food which is easily prepared – that is what today's consumers want. At Nofima we work with new technologies as well as storage and preservation methods intended to ensure that the food remains safe to eat and maintains the highest quality for as long as possible.
It is important that farmed fish have good health. Prevention is the best method to achieve this.
