The Importance of Environmental Monitoring

  • The impact of major recalls, increased consumer awareness, changing regulations and international standards is driving a shift in food safety and quality strategies. While the focus of food testing has traditionally been on raw materials and finished product, a preventive approach through testing the food processing environment can help identify and correct potential issues before they lead to a major problem or recall.

    Developed in partnership with Cornell University and other industry experts, there is now a comprehensive resource for environmental monitoring in the food and beverage industries. Based on industry practice and a scientific approach, this handbook provides guidance on building and implementing a holistic environmental monitoring program.
