Organization profile

Organisation Profile

Research and studies in the subject are based on strong competence in traditional microbiology, which is supplemented by competence in molecular biological technologies utilised in microbiology.

In cooperation with research institutes and the food industry, our research aims to ensure the production of safe food in the internationalising Finland.

Studies in Food Hygiene deal with health hazards caused by food, factors deteriorating the quality of food and their prevention.

International and National Collaboration Publications and projects within past five years.
