NZFS commissioned a project to inform risk models by providing estimates on expected bacterial growth for different scenarios of
chiller failure. This was to facilitate faster decisions around acceptance/rejection criteria for raw milk, and so limit the quantity of
milk discarded. The outcome of this work is guidance on the potential micro-organism growth during chiller failure, enabling a
robust estimate on if milk is not fit for purpose.
