    Food microbiology is the study of the microorganisms that inhabit, create, or contaminate foodFood microbiologists research micro-organisms in food and are tasked primarily with preventing food-borne diseases. They study food poisoning, spoilage, and preservation, as well as participating in food legislation establishment and enforcement
