Food Safety

Food safety is important to the consumers, but also to the food manufacturers to ensure a high quality of products, continued consumer confidence, customer satisfaction, and legal compliance. It only takes one single incidence to break down consumer confidence that has been built up through years. Recalls of products can be both costly and time consuming.  Consequently, the time spent on safety assessments early in the product development may be well spent.  At DHI we assist product developers, quality managers, researchers, businesses and authorities on matters concerning health, safety, and sustainability from the farm to the fork.
