Sustainability has become a main challenge of global food industry, which is undergoing transformation in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, mitigate climate change and protect landscapes and nature. Technological innovation is vital in helping the food supply chain adapt to the sustainability challenge, from farm level right through to the consumer.
One of such challenges is sustainable infection prevention and preservation of food, especially due to many pathogenic antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains transmitted in the food chain. The aim of this project is to develop a new strategy based on enzybiotics (antimicrobial enzymes) which specifically target pathogenic bacteria leaving natural microflora untouched.
