Herein we describe systems and technologies for the application of predictive models and the development of growth boundary models. The latter are supported by systematic analysis of the literature and are now used in risk assessments including those cold tolerant pathogens in minimally processed foods including dairy products. To promote further application of predictive models in the dairy industry and potential triple bottom line benefits we strongly advocate collaboration and integration of R&D at several levels.
