Nestlé opens new pathogen laboratories

| June 10, 2013

Food manufacturing giant Nestlé has officially opened what are claimed to be the most advanced laboratories of their kind to study microbial pathogens in food.

The new facilities in Switzerland feature high ‘bio-containment’ levels and will be used primarily to develop improved processing methods to kill pathogens without damaging the sensory and nutritional properties of foods.

Chief Technology Officer Werner Bauer commented, “The research done here will undoubtedly be a great asset for Nestlé, but we also have a responsibility to communicate and share the results with the scientific community and consumers, so that everyone can benefit.” See here for more information.
