Corbion elevates Listeria control model to increase speed-to-market and accuracy of food safety
14 Jun 2021 --- Corbion has upgraded its Listeria control model to increase speed-to-market and accuracy of food safety measures. Enhancements to the Corbion Listeria Control Model (CLCM) add to its robustness and make it easier to understand, says the company.
Improvements to the newly relaunched CLCM have made the job of identifying the most effective and cost-efficient Listeria control method very simple. The online model uses data from 20-plus years of Listeria research in foods.
It uses pH, Aw water activity (Aw), salt content and other parameters to determine the optimum antimicrobial to achieve the desired level of Listeria control. Food manufacturers using CLCM have been able to reduce product development time significantly.
“This tool gives our customers a speed-to-market advantage,” says Lonneke van Dijk, director of sustainable food solutions at Corbion. “And it’s a tool that gets better with time as we incorporate more real-world data and customer-requested improvements. The latest version of CLCM is more powerful and user-friendly.”
The improved CLCM provides customers with a much better user experience, with “improved functionality that delivers even more accurate predictions in products that contain vinegar.”
It also uses additional data from three more years of validation studies and adds greater robustness to the model.
Promoting food safety
According to Corbion, a “friendlier user interface” allows easy access, even on mobile devices.
Modeling results display clearly named prediction lines, such as “typical prediction” and “conservative prediction,” which better describe the likely outcomes for each set of parameters.
“This valuable tool is the culmination of sound food safety data, industry experience and modeling expertise,” van Dijk continues. “The CLCM is a result of our commitment to giving our customers an edge in creating safe and successful products.”
Earlier this month in light of World Food Safety Day, Kerry revealed that over 60 percent of consumers have increased their focus on food safety following the outbreak of COVID-19. The company is also ramping up its efforts on safety and preservation following a heightened awareness from consumers.
