Work Packages

WP 1 – Risk Assessment and Socio Economic Studies

The aim of this work package is to develop a Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment (QMRA) of the chilled/frozen food supply chain. This involves the identification of the most critical spots along the chain and the most critical micro organisms in the fish and poultry sector allocated and defined. In the frame of the work package a QMRA model as well as a quantitative HACCP (=Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) tool will be developed and integrated. The combined HACCP-QMRA system will be implemented into a Decision Support System (DSS) to achieve real time inputs for the risk assessment.

Beside this activities the partners will perform an assessment of currently used food packaging and investigate in possible improvements. Afterwards the safety and effectiveness of the new concepts will be validated.
