The ultimate output of AECL's Salmonella Initiative will be a through-chain risk idenitification report that includes research-based knowledge to be used as the basis for management of each risk which will also identify knowledge gaps that can be filled through the AECL R&D program.
Through the Salmonella Initiative AECL has been collaborating with relevant through-chain stakeholders (producers, retailers, health departments, regulators, food service operators, chefs) to identify appropriate controls measures at various stages through chain.

Congratulations to Chris Monnier from Mornington in Victoria, who has been awarded the latest Nuffield ‘Egg’ Scholarship sponsored by AECL.
The scholarships give Australian citizens the opportunity to study farming practices overseas, providing scholars with the opportunity to adopt and promote local and international best practice. They also help nurture and develop a unique network of industry leaders and innovators.
AECL supports one egg industry scholar each year. Previous winners have been Kate Mason (WA), Lachlan Green (Victoria) and Rob Peffer (NSW).
Chris will be travelling to America, Japan, Holland and Canada as part of his scholarship.
