Campden BRI to host microbiology conference

Campden BRI says that its Hot Topics in Microbiology conference, to be held on 13-14 October, will help the industry keep in touch with current and future microbiological issues affecting the safe production of food. The event will look at major points of concern, ‘horizon‐scan’ and, says Campden, keep delegates up to date with the latest information and understanding.

"The annual conference provides knowledge and opportunities for discussion on a wide range of microbiological matters associated with food,” said event director Fiona Cawkell, “and will include coverage of listeria; the role of the AW9 (British Standards Institution) Committee; the effect of salt reduction on the growth of spoilage bacteria; whole genome sequencing and its application to food microorganism testing; pathogenic Escherichia coli; sensitive detection of Campylobacter jejuni; staphylococcus aureus; viruses; and the US Food Safety Modernization Act."
