Experts in Listeria monocytogenes risk management

Smartfood R&D specialises in food product and non-food shelf-life. Our close-knit team of top specialists is constantly involved in finding practical solutions for the widest possible variety of shelf-life questions. 

Over the past 25 years smartfood R&D has developed into the independent specialist in the shelf-life of food and non-food products. 

Integrated approach

It is all interrelated: product safety, preservation, process management, production efficiency, cost management and – last but not least – the taste of the final product.

Smartfood R&D provides a comprehensive set of services that approaches Listeria monocytogenes risk management from an integrated perspective. 

With this integrated approach, we support food producers in managing Listeria monocytogenes risks by conducting a risk assessment, substantiating the growth potential of Listeria monocytogenes, carrying out challenge tests, validating processes and developing adapted recipes.

Smartfood R&D has developed a new method to calculate the actual worst-case initial contamination of Listeria monocytogenes with a high degree of accuracy.

In concrete terms, this means that our clients need less or no added preservatives at all, while generally preparing tastier products with an excellent Listeria monocytogenes securing.
