The growing attention of consumers about food’s safety is one of the most important challenge for food industry.
Events happened in the last years, like BSE epidemic in Europe, benzene in water, or the problem of dioxin in poultry farming, led to increasing costs and making worse the corporate images.
Food Safety became an important and critical requirement for corporates of the food chain, and the bigger european and world-wide retailer established that “safety for food farming products isn’t a competitive element”.
Consumers in the last years wants not only safe products, but they’re asking for high quality products. They’re interested no only about quality of ingredients, lack of additive or methods of production, but to features like traditional origin, the belonging to a certain geographic area, the traceability of the producer, the environmental and social impact of production.
