Food Safety

The Food Safety Team has an enviable record for helping the New Zealand meat industry to produce some of the microbiologically cleanest meat products in the world. This has enhanced the storage and shelf-life of NZ produced meat products so that it can be enjoyed in all parts of the globe.

As well as ground breaking micro work, this team has helped develop the CapTech packaging system.
