【Food Microorganisms Task Force】
Task Force Objectives
The task force aims to gather and research scientific information on food microorganisms (especially harmful microbes) that is useful to the food products industry, from a broad perspective. It will also disseminate the results to third-party institutions through publications, symposiums, and lectures, under the name of ILSI Japan.

Main Activities to Date
1.
  Held international symposium on Alicyclobacillus (August 2003)
2.
  Issued publication on Alicyclobacillus (Kenpakusha, August 2004)
3.
  Held symposium on microbial contaminants in food products (December 2006)
4.
  Published Alicyclobacillus (Thermophilic Acidophilic Bacilli) (Springer, 2007)

Future Activities
1.
  Overview
     The task force is planning activities relating to Alicyclobacillus, listeria bacterium, and microbial contaminants in food products
2.
  Specific plans
   
(1)
Maintenance of the English edition of Alicyclobacillus (Thermophilic Acidophilic Bacilli)
   
(2)
Listeria
   Working together with Dr. Ikimi of the National Institute of Health Sciences, the following is planned:
Disseminating scientific information on listeria to ILSI Japan and the public (request assistance of the Food Science Information Center)
Sorting out internal quantitative monitoring information relating to listeria
Sorting out the listeria strains held by each company
Lateral cooperation for the development of high-precision measurement methods for listeria, aiming for an official method
   
(3)
Microbial contaminants in food products (mold) and mold toxins
 Working together with Dr. Konishi of the National Institute of Health Sciences (and Dr. Takatori, Visiting Professor at the Tokyo University of Agriculture), the preparation of a handbook is planned
 The desired handbook will be easily searchable to allow quality control personnel to identify molds discovered in the field, and to find the published document where the mold toxicity is evaluated.
