Ensuring food safety and quality for today's demanding consumers
Food quality and safety are two of the most challenging issues in the current regulatory environment that are of great concern to today's health-conscious consumers. Quality and safety of raw materials, through the manufacturing process to the end products must be constantly monitored to ensure regulatory compliance.
In today's global economy, a food product or its ingredients may be sourced from a single farm or from producers and manufacturers worldwide. Truth-in-labeling regulations exist to verify the authenticity and origins of these products as they are exported around the globe. However, recurring food contamination scandals show that there is always room for error, if not intentional adulteration or counterfeiting. Thermo Fisher Scientific are constantly developing technologies for testing the authenticity of foods and feeds to protect consumer interests and public health.
Having confidence in the authenticity of your food ingredients is essential to protecting your brand against food fraud: a topic of increasing concern in the food industry and an area highly regulated by authorities through food labelling regulations. Food fraud costs the food industry around $15 billion globally1, 2 however the complexity of the food supply chain is challenging the abilities of analytical tools used for traceability of ingredients.
Thermo Fisher Scientific is leading the fight against fraud with tools for the most common applications.
Knowing where to start isn’t easy but Thermo Fisher Scientific is bringing together industry leading scientists to discuss current technologies, which will include food microbiology testing, manufacturing and processing, food analytical and authenticity testing as well as beverage testing.
Whether you are testing for contaminants or developing a new production process, this roadshow will cover through a range of innovative solutions, from basic food testing through to advance nutritional testing for labeling.
