SOPHY-Project seminar: predicting safety, quality and shelf life

On Thursday, 28 February 2013, the SOPHY project is organising a project seminar together with an advisory platform meeting in Gloucestershire, UK.

The seminar will consist of presentations of the SOPHY project consortium, reviewing the microbiological effects taking place in ready-to-eat (RTE) foods, focusing on factors that need to be considered when predicting the safety, shelf life and quality of RTE foods. In particular, it will consider existing software tools for microbial modelling, as well as developments and advances in new modelling software. 

The Advisory Platform (AP) provides interested parties from the food industry the chance to contribute to the project by expressing their needs, ideas and suggestions related to the project results in order to guarantee that the developed software is of best possible use for the industry and best meets companies’ needs. Members of the Advisory Platform will be continuously informed about the progress of the project via newsletters and invitations to SOPHY related events and workshops. In the Advisory Platform meeting, the progress of the SOPHY project will be presented, followed by a platform member discussion.

SOPHY is an EU project which is developing a web-based software tool for the prediction of the quality and shelf life of ready-to-eat products, so that food producers can optimise raw material selection, product formulation and processing steps virtually.
