The Safeconsume project was a 5.5 year project with 32 partners from 14 European countries funded by the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. The background for the project was the need for new strategies to help consumer mitigate food risks. Hazards in food accounts for about 23 million cases of illness and 5000 deaths in Europe every year. Nearly 40 % of food borne outbreaks are domestic/kitchen outbreaks. SafeConsume targeted the top five foodborne hazards in Europe, accounting for about 70% of the health burden related to foodborne illness.

The project resulted in 53 scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals, which are listed with links in this report.
