HUGIN is proud to announce its participation in CytoCam, a project under the Eurostars-EUREKA Programme.
This 36-month project to promote food quality and safety runs from May 1, 2016 to May 1, 2019.
Iceland and Denmark are the participating countries, with 3 partners from ORF Genetics, DTU and HUGIN EXPERT A/S under coordinator Jón Már Björnsson. The total project budget is € 1,068,670.
CytoCam aims to reduce the number of people who fall ill due to Campylobacter infected chickens through the development of an innovative feed additive from transgenic barley seeds. The feed additive contains a bioactive protein that can significantly reduce the 3-log Campylobacter count in the chicken gut. HUGIN will create a cost/reward decision-making application that can demonstrate the benefits of the feed to farmers.
