Why are we undertaking this project?
There is a growing trend within the food and drinks industry to use clean label preservatives. Many manufacturers are looking for natural
preservation systems that will reduce energy costs, avoid flavour deterioration, help maintain heat-labile nutrients, and permit a wider range
of packaging options.
What are we doing as part of this project?
Practically assessing potential novel preservatives to understand efficacy and whether other processing steps are needed to ensure their
effectiveness in extending shelf-life. This project will also produce a toolbox of natural preservatives for clean labelling.
