Please provide a short description of the state-of-the-art and/or current trends in the field? How does the result fit into it?
Sheep breeding plays an important environmental, social and economical role in Italy, in particular in Abruzzo and in Teramo province, contributing to soil preservation and local traditions defence. While the consumption of lamb meat is mainly related to celebrations, on the contrary the meat of sheep and muttons, especially at the end of the career, mostly in the form of the typical “arrosticini” (skewers), is widespread throughout the year, with peaks in summertime. The aim of the project is the upgrading of the quality of sheep “arrosticini”, by the application of mixtures of biopreserving agents containing essential oils extracted from local plants, to extend shelf-life and promote food safety.







What is the problem/need/knowledge gap that the research result is responding to?  How was it addressed before?
The use of essential oils (EO) and plant extracts of natural origin will be used to extend the shelf-life of sheep arrosticini, packed in modified atmosphere and refrigerated.





What is the potential for further research?
The introduction of an innovative bio-preservation techniques provides on the microbiological and chemical-physical quality of “arrosticini” made of sheep









What is the proposed method of IPR-protection? (patent, license, trademark etc.)







What are the steps that need to be taken in order to secure the IPR-protection? What is the cost of IPR-protection?
