PoultryCast update for April 22, 2010, Evaluating Enzyme Effectiveness - Steps You Can Take

U.S. Poultry will return to Russia after negotiators agreed to provide supplies which had not been treated with a chlorine rinse to reduce Salmonella. The story was covered in the St. Petersburg Times.

It’s interesting to note the article mentions the renewed effort to increase domestic meat production in Russia. “President Dmitry Medvedev signed a new 'food security' doctrine in February, calling for, among other things, 85 percent of all meat consumed in the country to be produced domestically. In January, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said Russia would be able to cease all poultry imports by 2015.” There are, of course, many forms of trade restrictions.

As an aside, Elanco Food Solutions may play a key role in resolving the issue. The following is a recent release from the company: "Elanco Food Solutions has introduced a food safety product for poultry processing plants: a carcass rinse to reduce Salmonella… AviBrom is a post-harvest carcass rinse that reduces Salmonella pathogens during processing".

Elanco Food Solutions recently was launched as a business platform of Elanco, a division of Eli Lilly and Company. Elanco Food Solutions will market pre- and post-harvest food-safety products and services to poultry, beef and pork packers and processors.

PoultryCast has been invited to Elanco’s new world headquarters to discuss the Elanco Food Solutions program. That visit scheduled to take place this next month. Stay tuned…

If you haven’t checked the PoultryCast website recently, you may have missed the conversation on ‘Evaluating Enzymes’. The presentation was well attended at the recent Midwest Poultry Convention. We spoke with Dr. Brian Richart of Iowa State shortly afterwards.

Next event, the Animal Ag Alliance Stakeholder Summit in Alexandria, VA at the end of the month. Check out the coverage at PoultryCast.com… and we’ll be talking soon.
