Bacteriocins have the potential to be used in bio preservation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of sakacin A against representative isolates of Listeria monocytogenes from food borne outbreaks; to study the activity of sakacin A in ready-to-eat (RTE) foods; and to identify a suitable biopolymer for coating. The results obtained demonstrated the possible use of the bacteriocin as antimicrobial agent in packaging applications.
