Application Note: Ensuring Food Quality and Safety with Elemental Analysis
The globalized food supply chain poses serious challenges to producers, brands, consumers, and governments. An ever-intensifying worldwide competition, a growing number of contaminants and a strong demand for food quality control (QC) are constantly increasing the number of stringent regulations. Here, safety concepts such as HACCP (Hazard analysis and critical control points) are implemented to ensure safe edibles at any point in the production chain.
The compliance with these directives requires continuous product quality monitoring in all steps of food production.
