The American Meat Institute Foundation (AMIF) has released its 2008-2009 Request for Pre-Proposals. The topics covered in the request are based on AMIF’s research priorities as defined by the AMIF Research Advisory Committees. These committees are comprised of industry, academic and government officials.
AMIF is soliciting pre-proposals on controlling Listeria monocytogenes on ready-to-eat (RTE) meat and poultry products, Escherichia coli O157:H7 in fresh beef products and Salmonella in meat and poultry products.
AMIF is also soliciting pre-proposals for Targeted Research, which includes research needs identified by AMI member companies. These topics include developing a white paper on non-O157 shiga-toxin producing E. coli, evaluation of existing interventions on virus inactivation and improving epidemiological data on food attribution for listeriosis.
