Food safety is high on the priority list of consumers, regulatory agencies, and industry stakeholders owing to the increasing health and safety risks posed by microbiological, chemical, and environmental contaminants in food products. This emergence of new safety issues has compelled companies to establish as well as upgrade their food safety and testing programs and come up with innovative analytical approaches in response to these challenges.
Food manufacturing companies are also driven to deploying more rigorous method-validation standards in the face of changing and much stricter regulations. Difficult-to-detect food contaminants are now being spotted with higher sensitivity testing methods and companies are working on bringing down the incidence of product recalls. Smartphone apps are also being launched to assist in testing for food allergens in restaurants and at home.
