As we are all aware, good health comes on top of everyone’s list of priorities. One of the most important influences on our health is the safety and hygiene of our food products. More than ever, the food industry is being made aware of their responsibility to the consumer by using safer and more hygienic production methods and by making sure the product remains so, right through the distribution chain, all the way to the end-user. Furthermore, there are legal obligations for the producer, both at the national level and at EU integration legislation, to document the ingredients, the product and production procedures. This is particularly true for exporters as they are obliged to maintain food safety and hygiene levels at EU and international standards. In order to meet these standards and legislation procedures, the industry has to invest in R&D facilities and product control labs with the appropriate technology and techniques, instruments and equipment to enable them to produce the required documentation necessary for EU compliance.
