Food safety is a basic requirement for all food products and a prime requisite for public health. Incidents with foods on the market that lead to spoilage, foodborne illness, or worse, have an extremely negative impact on products of such foods and severely damage consumer trust. When safety is compromised, unavoidable recalls are costly and damaging to the image and brand. In addition, spoilage of foods significantly adds to food waste. As new developments in foods (e.g. clean label, plant protein transition, energy efficient and milder processing, etc.) bring new, unknown challenges and approaches, food safety remains a continuing challenge for the food industry.
NIZO helps to protect your image and brand by providing support on food safety and chain control. Through multidisciplinary research and consultancy projects, we generate and manage complex data and results and give meaning to these to provide hands-on solutions in the entire chain:
- Raw materials and ingredients
- Product formulation and processing conditions
- Finished product
NIZO has more than 70 year of experience and expertise in the control of pathogens, spoilage microorganisms and contaminants in foods.
Recently, a webinar was presented on Food Safety: Ensuring Microbiological Quality & Safety of B2B and Finished Products.
