L. monocytogenes growth on the surfaces of cheeses inoculated with complex consortium TR15 and defined consortia. L. monocytogenes counts expressed in log CFU·cm−2; cheese surfaces inoculated with control = commercial ripening culture, TR15 = complex consortium (rind suspension), ABCD, ABC, ABD and ACD = defined consortia from identified isolates (A = six lactic acid bacteria, B = seven Gram-positive and catalase-positive bacteria, C = three Gram-negative bacteria and D = three yeasts).
