Ensuring microbiological safety and control requires an extensive and updated knowledge of pathogenic microorganisms from raw material supply through processing to food distribution. Every stakeholder of the food value chain needs reliable data, support, and pedagogical tools to assure the microbiological quality of food products.
Through its tools and activities, e-SafeFood will ensure a better knowledge of microbiological hazards and a better control of microbiological quality of food products.
Many positive impacts are expected to come out of this project:
better health protection of the consumer
less food loss and waste
promotion of safer and more innovative food products
increased employability (especially for students)
better accessibility to knowledge through online tools, especially for users with limited access to on-site learning
