Frozen Food Foundation Now Accepting Research Award Nominations
Previous research has demonstrated that freezing can promote food safety by killing or significantly reducing potentially harmful microbes in foods. Still, additional opportunities exist for increased use of freezing technologies as a barrier to the spread of food-borne pathogens.
The International Association for Food Protection will be receiving award nominations through February 16, 2010. Award nomination forms and instructions for submitting nominations for the Freezing Research Award can be found online at www.foodprotection.org and www.frozenfoodfoundation.org. The award winner will be announced at the 2010 IAFP Annual Meeting in August in Anaheim, Calif. The recipient will receive a plaque and a $2,000 honorarium sponsored by the Frozen Food Foundation.
