Biofilm contamination in the food industry: Review of scientific knowledge and industrial experiences
Biofilm: a main concern of the food industry
The food and beverage industry is confronted daily with a recurring threat of production sites: the prevention and eradication of biofilms (nests of bacteria protected by an organic matrix). Biofilms are 1,000 times more resistant to biocides than planktonic (free) cells and there are 1,000 to 10,000 times more bacteria growing in a biofilm rather than as planktonic cells. Biofilms therefore represent a major risk for the quality of the final products, as well as for the public health and economy.
Realco is presenting the 2nd International Biofilm Summit this fall ! It is being held in Lisbon Portugal, Oct 25 & 26. For more information, including how to register to attend, please visit the summit’s dedicated website:
Solutions exist today to help producers and prevent critical contaminations.
Notable academics, scientific experts and food processors from all over the world (such as AFCO, Madison Chemical, GEA, INRA, ANSES, Hypred, Quality Partners, Aquatools and Novozymes) will share their knowledge, vision and best practices for a safer and more profitable F&B industry.
Constituting not only an exceptional platform to present innovative techniques, the IBS will offer you unique networking opportunities.
Our whole team is looking forward to welcoming you at this unique symposium.
