An international EU-funded partnership is leading the way in food quality and safety. Headed by the University of the West of England (UWE) in the UK, the project, which includes eight institutions from seven countries, will study the genetic aspects of food quality to improve safety standards.

Called EXCELMEAT, the initiative is a Marie Curie Actions International Research Staff Exchange Scheme, funded under the People Programme of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project will bring together multidisciplinary expertise from many fields including scientists from the Institute of Food and Technology Research (Spain), Iowa State University (US), the University of Bologna (Italy), the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences, the Institute for Pig Breeding (Ukraine) and the University of Leuven (Belgium).

One of the aspects of this project will be improving the quality of pork, which is the most popular meat in Europe; it can be cured and made into the delicacies such as Parma ham in Italy and chorizo in Spain.
