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 results in severe damage to consumer trust. On top of that, the unavoidable recalls are costly and compromise damage to the image and brand. As new developments in foods (e.g. plant protein transition) bring new, unknown challenges and approaches, food safety seems to be a continuing challenge for the food industry.
