Microorganisms and foodstuffs

Microbiology

Microorganisms and foodstuffs have a lot in common. Manufacturers in the foodstuffs sector are not the only ones to understand the connection, consumers are similarly aware of this when they go shopping for groceries. For one thing, it is hard to imagine cheese, yoghurt and beer production without microorganisms today. On the flip side, bacterial contamination of foodstuffs can lead to serious illness among consumers, including diarrhoea or vomiting. Both consumers and legislators therefore demand high standards of quality and safety for foodstuffs.
