|Abstract: ||Fresh meat is exposed to various factors which cause microbiological
contamination during handling, processing, packaging and storage. Furthermore, the
storage conditions applied may affect the microbial association of the product and
consequently the spoilage process. Therefore, the purpose and importance of this
study was to identify areas that should be addressed to monitor the succession of
bacterial communities during storage of raw meat. The improvement of the
microbiological quality and safety of meat was also studied. Cont/d.|
