Real time monitoring for food safety



A review of the Global Food Safety Partnership (GFSP)’s approach to real time technologies to ensure food safety has been written for the Laboratory Network.

Here is an extract:

“According to the GFSP, there is an ongoing world food safety problem that threatens every economy and food company, challenging governmental regulatory authorities, sickening millions of people each year, introducing barriers to trade, and hurting corporate bottom lines. According to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), “We live in a world where confidence is a key pillar of the global food system – and consumer expectations for food safety are high.” Hence it is keen to see a global supply chain operate to ensure that food products are safe for consumption.”
