How Can Pathogen Research Benefit Your Business?

Pathogen research helps food companies understand the potential risks to food safety and how to avoid these consequences. Food safety must be integrated into every part of your process, including production, packaging and delivery.

The following are the key benefits of food safety research, especially when carried out in a well-equipped pathogen research facility:

Prevent Foodborne Illness

Bacteria, microbes, pathogens and contaminations in food, such as E. coli and salmonella, cause foodborne illnesses. People who consume contaminated food may become ill, and in some cases, foodborne illness can be fatal.

The consequences of foodborne illnesses to public health and the economy can be prevented through food research. Research can determine which foodborne illnesses your facility is most prone to and empower your team to take the necessary steps to avoid a breakout, which may include:

  • Controlling and monitoring safety protocols throughout production.
  • Training employees in food safety.
  • Establishing a reporting system for food safety concerns.

Increase Operational Excellence

Food safety starts with ensuring your equipment is used properly and that all processes follow industry standards and procedures. Food safety research can improve your company’s operational efficiency in several ways:

  • Reduced risk of contamination: Food safety measures can decrease the likelihood of contaminated food to keep your consumers safe.
  • Fewer product recalls: Companies with strict food safety protocols may have fewer product recalls, which saves time and resources while protecting their reputation for quality.
  • Improved operational efficiency: Establish a food safety culture by ensuring your team understands the importance of food safety and your procedures to prevent contamination so operations can progress smoothly.

Modernize Systems and Policies

Companies in the food and beverage industry must comply with stringent industry standards. In the United States, these entities manage food safety regulation on the national level:

  • The Food and Drug Administration ensures foods are sanitary and properly labeled.
  • The Food Safety and Inspection Service oversees food safety for meat, poultry and eggs.
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention supports foodborne illness monitoring and response efforts.

In addition, companies must also work with public health and agriculture departments at the state level.

Food safety research can improve your facility’s systems and approach toward following these policies. Compliance can help your company:

  • Protect your customers from foodborne disease.
  • Achieve and maintain accreditations.
  • Reduce the likelihood of a food safety-related legal issue.
  • Maintain your customers’s trust and your company’s reputation.

Our Food Safety and Probiotic Research Areas

Our food safety research focuses on these key areas, including pathogen research facility-related efforts:

  • Process Validation: Data collection and evaluation to provide scientific evidence of the most effective and consistent food safety processes leading to quality products.
  • Shelf Life Studies: Learning how vulnerable a food product is to pathogen contamination over time.
  • Probiotic Isolation/Identification, Evaluation and Production: Developing new and better probiotics to protect and improve the quality of your food products.
  • Pathogen Biofilm Removal by Probiotics: Exploring blanketing, biosurfactant production and other methods of using probiotics to remove the pathogen biofilm that can contaminate food products and food production equipment.
  • Probiotic Premix Palatability and Efficacy in Animals: Learning how effective probiotic premixes are at promoting health in pet food.
  • Probiotic Premix Formulation: Finding the best probiotic formulations for both human and animal food to boost health and eliminate, block or prevent dangerous pathogen contamination.
