Internship on microbial testing of food products

About programme

General description

Microbial contamination is one of the biggest challenges for industrial products that mainly include food, beverages, water and pharma. The food industry is one of the biggest sectors that produce food in varied forms and helps in the sustainability of living throughout the world. Food products are extremely liable for spoilage through microorganisms. Even though the food companies produce products through good manufacturing practices (GMP) abiding by the regulations of the food and drug administration (FDA) or FSSAI still there are high possibilities for contamination in the food. The contamination reduces the shelf life of the food and relatively induces high health risks for the consumers. Hence food companies majorly employ quality control and quality assurance departments to make the produced products to meet the expected standards.
