The effect of the presence and growth of spoilage on the keeping quality of perishable products was modelled on theoretical premises. Growth was modelled as simply as possible, to direct attention to effects on quality and to detect how quality could be affected by the bacteria. Two approaches were investigated. Although a perfect fit with multivariate nonlinear regression was obtained, the results of the analyses indicate practical solutions to be possible.
