Campden BRI - BFFF

Food industry names cyber security, human microbiota, soil health and antimicrobial resistance as among the challenges to be tackled using science and technology A new Campden BRI consultation identifies the challenges that the food industry will need to tackle using science and technology. Scientific and Technical Needs of the Food and Drink Supply Chain was […]

Bacterial identification and typing seminar The identification of microorganisms is a fundamental part of microbiology. Today it is possible to go beyond the traditional ‘genus’ and ‘species’ naming of isolates to differentiate between ‘strains’ of the same species. We will explore different approaches to separating microorganisms from each-other to facilitate microbiological investigations into food contamination […]

BRC7 symposium: top non-conformances It has been said that ‘Mistakes have the power to turn you into something better than you were before.’ Looking back at the top non–conformances of 2014 and 2015 against BRC Global Food Standard version 7, it has been found that a lot of them arise around site standards. If we […]

Microbiological methods: Campden BRI seminar Rapid testing techniques are becoming more widely used in food microbiology laboratories as part of the drive to produce faster and more accurate results. Conventional microbiology is also experiencing many changes with the onset of new media and confirmation kits. A Campden BRI seminar (see www.campdenbri.co.uk/rapid-conventional-micro-methods.php), to be held on […]

Safe production of dried foods Although traditionally thought of as stable from a microbiological point of view, dried foods can still be contaminated, and survival of organisms is possible, even in tough conditions. As such, their safety needs to be controlled as carefully as any ‘wet’ food or drink product. This means applying the full […]
