Food Safety Expertise
Today, food safety is a crucial factor in the global food supply system. This is our slogan: ”There is no Food Security without Food safety”.
World Health Organization defines that sufficient amount of safe and nutritious food
access is the key to maintain public health good. The food-borne risks and diseases at a global level are quite high and unacceptable in spite of all improvements in food safety in the agri-food chain in the recent years,
According to EFSA data, foodborne zoonotic diseases are very common in the European Union and they threat global public health. The most common diseases are caused by microorganisms such as Campylobacter, Salmonella, Yersinia, E. coli and Listeria. EFSA states that more than 350,000 people in the European Union are suffering from food-borne diseases every year.
