2 Innovative Solutions that Enable Food Safety The importance of food safety Producing safe and healthy food is critical to the success of one of the largest industries worldwide. New ingredients, new processing procedures and the change of the consumers and buyers expectations and purchase behaviour challenge all functions involved on a daily basis. From primary food production to the food processing industry down to the trade and customers, safe and healthy food is a requirement for all types of food. Dairy products, meat and poultry, ready to eat and baby food, only to mention some of the food types that are present in our daily lives, are tested and controlled by the industry to ensure safety and quality for the consumer and are key to successful brands within the Food Industry and the related laboratories. There is an increased awareness for confidence in safe food on all levels, so that food processors with reliable and accurate Food Safety and Hygiene Monitoring processes are able to improve quality and added value to their products. Additionally, the increased focus by regulatory bodies on the processes and regulations, e.g. HACCP reflects the overall importance of Food Safety and drives the food safety and related programs throughout the entire sector. There are a variety of products and processes available when it comes to optimisation of food safety and hygiene in your company. These options and programs range from surface hygiene monitoring to biomass detection, rapid microbial detection, and detection of allergens and pathogens that are potentially harmful to the consumer.
