The Korea Food Research Institute (KFRI) said Wednesday its researchers have developed a technology to manage food-poisoning bacteria in food materials safely in variable temperature environments of the food supply chain, such as storage and distribution.
KFRI’s “dynamic prediction model” can predict the proliferation of food poisoning and contamination of food supplies in real-time using the Internet of Things by linking the temperature provided by the food supply network.
Most of the food ingredients in group meals are safe. Still, some food products contaminated with food poisoning bacteria may increase due to temperature changes during the distribution-storage process. This explains why real-time safety management technology is needed in the process, KFRI said in a news release.
