Infiniti Research releases top food safety trends
With the outbreak of foodborne diseases recently, food safety has never been more important. Infiniti Research, a world-renowned market intelligence solutions provider, has announced the top food safety trends for 2018.
Making sure the food you ate is safe is not as easy as choosing fresh produce. There’s still a lot that’s going on with the packaging and processing of foods.
“Adulterated and infected foods cause a lot of safety concerns amongst humans,” said an industry expert from Infiniti research in a report from Businesswire.
That is why Food monitoring is still a concern and authorities are continuously on the lookout for ways to apply strict standards for food safety.
The US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) will be making changes to its regulations on the reorganized strategy for the application and training of Food safety modernization act (FSMA). The strategy outlines foundational rules with Preventative Controls for Human and Animal Food, Produce Safety, and Foreign Supplier Verification Programs.
Since dining out has been the trend, restaurants will also have to come up with new strategies for acquiring fresh supplies seven days a week, upholding food safety while balancing the cost factor and procurement of fresh foods.
This will also call on the traceability of the supply chain. One way to guarantee food safety is to know where the supplies are coming from. In order to make food supply chain traceability a possibility, many food firms are looking towards blockchain technology to offer an easy answer.
This technology can trace a finished product back to the origin with comfort, which cannot be interfered. As a result, food suppliers can build trust towards their brand amongst the consumers.
