Agency Calls for Research on Meat Control

24 September 2013

UK - The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is commissioning a new piece of research into official controls on meat, seeking a contractor to develop a more targeted approach to inspection for Cysticercus bovis.

The work forms part of the Future Meat Controls Research Programme, which is aimed at gathering evidence to modernise meat inspection.

The objective of the FSA's review of meat controls is to improve public health by adopting a more risk- and evidence-based approach to meat production.

The deadline for applications has been extended until Friday 25 October 2013.
