The FIRST European Field study on food cold chain– Monitoring product temperature history throughout the whole cold chain from the production phase to the consumer domicile.

Four FRISBEE partners in four European countries, Greece (National Technological University of Athens), France (CEMAGREF/ IRSTEA), UK (London South Bank University) and Belgium (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven) will all together conduct this field study from production plants to consumers homes with the same type of product (cooked ham) in four representative European markets. The goal of this field study is to identify the weakest link of cold chain to improve the food quality and safety. FRISBEE project is going to launch the first European Field study on cold chain this summer 2012.

Temperature recorders will be incorporated inside of the ham packaging at the end of the production to follow the product temperature up to the consumer.
The FRISBEE database will also be enriched with this future temperature data. The respect of the cold chain is essential for maintaining food safety for refrigerated products.
