Do you have Listeria under control?

European guidelines show increased demands for robustness of end products. This results in extra obligations for companies that produce foodstuff and end products for the European market.

Listeria Monocytogenes is a well-known threat in the food processing industry. There is a trend of increased enforcement in this area. Businesses in the food processing industry have two options to comply to these guidelines. This can be done through a challenge test in which a product stays within shelf life with an outgrowth of < log 2, or only by using predictive modelling (e.g. FSSP/Combase) when the outgrowth of Listeria stays below log 0.5..
