Project Description

Microbial issues of food safety are among the most significant constraints for raw or minimally processed products. These issues result due to presence of contaminating human pathogens in fresh produce and meat products as well as emerging concerns with antimicrobial resistant bacteria in food products and food processing facilities. To overall goal is to reduce the risk of transmission of both pathogenic and spoilage bacteria through minimally processed food and to mitigate persistence of antimicrobial resistant bacteria in food processing facilities. To achieve this goal, the proposed research plan aims to develop innovative sanitizers using cost-effective bio-based carriers that can achieve significant microbial reduction on surface of minimally processed foods and food contact surfaces. Success of this project will significantly reduce the risk of food borne outbreaks, and address the unmet need of reducing persistence and transmission of antimicrobial resistance microbes in our food supply chain. This impact will be realized based on development and commercialization of these innovative technologies.

Preferred background:
• Food Engineering
• Food Microbiology
• Material Science
• Biosystems Engineering
