In this paper, the sensitivity of food spoilage organisms (Bacillus cereus; Escherichia coli) to natural antimicrobial peptides (surfactin; polylysine; nisin) from microorganism was observed, and the optimization of antimicrobial effect in meat evaluated by a RSM was studied. Results showed that these strains were sensitive to them. MICs of surfactin and polylysine and nisin were 31.25 and 312.5 and 312.5 μg/mL respectively against B. cereus, and MIC were 15.625 and 156.25 and 2,500 μg/mL respectively against E. coli. The optimization result indicated that B. cereus and E. coli could be sterilized by six log cycles when the temperature was 14.05 °C, the action time was 10.95 h, and the concentration (surfactin/polylysine/nisin weight ratio 0.1:1:2) was 379.53 μg/mL.
