Campylobacter Intervention

Freshline® SafeChill™ system for poultry – enhanced product quality through additional food safety

Campylobacteriosis is the most frequently reported foodborne illness in the EU. This illness is often caused by the presence of campylobacter bacteria on the surface of the chicken. A common solution to this is to use a heat treatment such as secondary scalding. However, heat treatments aren’t flexible in terms of operations and can damage the chicken’s skin or cause color changes.

Our experts have worked with poultry processors to develop the Freshline® SafeChill™ System. This unique intervention uses super-chilled air to effectively and safely reduce the campylobacter presence on contaminated broiler carcasses.

Why choose the Freshline® SafeChill™ System for Campylobacter Intervention?

  • Compliance: reduces the campylobacter counts to acceptable levels. Can be used alone or to complement another intervention already in place.
  • Customizability: modular system allowing you to meet current and future production line speeds, continuously operating up to three shifts a day.
  • Operator Safety: safe in terms of operations (indirect chilling ensures that the nitrogen stays within the leak tested system).
  • Product Quality: the physical and organoleptic properties of the chicken remain unchanged.
  • Improved energy efficiency: the excess cold air from the SafeChill™ system can be utilized in the chiller; this can optimize your chilling process.

“Do I need to say that chicken, treated with the Freshline® SafeChill™ System, was previously frozen?”
No. During the SafeChill™ process, the meat does not go below –2°C (we have run tests measuring temperatures to verify this).
