European Union - European Project survey CoolMeat
20 Jan 2011
We would like to briefly inform you about a R&D project that we are currently involved in called COOL-MEAT, which is being funded under the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Commission. The COOL-MEAT Consortium comprises Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and Research and Technology Developers (RTDs) from across Europe.
The COOL-MEAT project aims to develop a combined cook-cool technique, known as immersion vacuum cooling, for rapid cooling of water-cooked meat joints. In terms of its use within the cooked meat industry, the technique will reduce the cooling times (up to 40%) and the energy consumption considerably, while keeping the quality of the cooked products.
In order to ensure that the needs of the cooked meat industry are adequately researched and taken into account during the development work of this project, we would be most grateful if you could take a few minutes of your time to fill out a simple on-line questionnaire, which you can easily access by clicking on:
All responses will be treated with utmost confidentiality and will be used for the sole purpose of helping us to design the most suitable and versatile tool to meet the needs of the industry.
If you as an association could distribute the survey among your partners and associates help us a lot in order to obtain the max number of responses.
While we would like as much feedback from you as possible, please feel free to skip any question you do not wish to or are unable to answer.
Thank you in advance and best wishes,
The COOL-MEAT Consortium.
