The National Pork Board is soliciting research proposals in the category of International Trade: Variety Meat Microbiological and Residue Study of Products for Human Consumption in Export Markets. The purpose of the research requested here is to determine current microbiological and chemical residue status of pork offal products destined for export to allow for establishment of a baseline industry benchmark related to safety and quality.
NPB is requesting proposals for a comprehensive microbiological and residue survey of pork offal products, including but not limited to hearts, livers, lungs, kidneys, brains and intestines. Preference will be given to projects that involve academic and commercial collaboration. Researchers can propose work as independent consultants or as part of a university.
Requests for second-year funding must be resubmitted.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
