FSA seeks meat research contractors

The Food Standards Agency is seeking a contractor, or contractors, to carry out research into future meat controls in the UK. The deadline for applications is Monday, 4 January, 2010.

The Agency has carried out a range of work to identify food safety hazards in connection with the production of meat and to establish effective methods for their control.
In July 2007, the FSA Board agreed that, following consideration of the Tierney Review, the Agency should adopt a more risk and evidence-based, proportionate and targeted approach to the regulation of meat hygiene.
The FSA is currently undertaking a review of current official controls on meat, which has been identified as a priority within the FSA’s Strategy for 2010-2015.
