Meat can be categorized as perishable food, due to their moisture, nutrition content and pH condition. Spoilage that caused by microorganism can affect meat’s quality, so good handling and storage are required to preserve the quality of meat. This research is aimed to find economical and save solution to preserve chicken meat. Lactobacillus sp. Strain SCG 1223 was isolated from fresh milk. Bacteriocin, which was produced by these lactic acid bacteria was inhibitory active against some pathogenic bacteria. Crude bacteriocin extract were examined for inhibitory active against Salmonella Typhimurium strain IMVS 1718, Escherchia coli strain ATCC 25922 and Listeria monocytogenes strain ATCC 7644 with inhibitory activity of 735, 711 and 1869 AU/ml accordingly. Implementation of bacteriocin extract and powder bacteriocin showed that bacteriocin extract and powder were not effective to be used as preservative for chicken meat.
