This MIG is concerned with all aspects of food and drink microbiology, including hygiene, pathogens, virus, spoilage,
safety, methods, good laboratory practice and the interpretation of microbiological data. A regular 'issues' update also draws MIG members'
attention to outbreaks of food poisoning throughout the world. The aim of this MIG is to provide a collaborative environment in which challenges
and solutions can be discussed. It is also an ideal forum for networking, horizon-scanning, identifying gaps in knowledge and addressing them,
as well as keeping up to date with legislation, latest research, and other upcoming topics.
