The American Meat Institute Foundation (AMIF) released its 2011-2012 request for pre-proposals (RFP).
AMIF invites pre-proposals on applied and fundamental research that will improve the control of microbial pathogens in meat and poultry products. AMIF is soliciting pre-proposals on controlling shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli in fresh beef products, Listeria monocytogenes on ready-to-eat (RTE) meat and poultry products, and Salmonella in meat and poultry products. The priorities are listed by pathogen and are further categorised within each. Research priorities that are outside of the scope of the three referenced pathogens are included in an Other Food Safety Research section.
