2nd MC Meeting and WG Workshops of the COST Action FA1202 

“A European Network For Mitigating Bacterial Colonisation and Persistence On Foods and Food Processing Environments” 

April 4-5, 2013, Hotel Mercure Potsdam, Germany 

Persistent bacteria on foods and processing sites are of great concern in food industry causing continuous recontamination and safety problems. Removal of persistent bacteria and biofilms requires costly efforts leading to lost productivity and environmental issues. There is a need to combine and re-evaluate current scientific knowledge on persistence of bacteria and to introduce new engineering approaches for controlling pathogens. 

The objective of this Action is to enable the development / promotion of targeted solutions for controlling risks associated with persistent bacteria and biofilms in the food industry.
