The food and beverage industry is continually searching for ways to reduce the cost of business while ensuring quality and safety. With food safety being a top concern of industry, consumers, and governments alike, segments of this industry face an increasing number of government standards and regulations. Many have already adopted the principles of such programs as the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP), Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) and others. Such programs offer a systematic approach to identifying and evaluating biological, chemical, and physical hazards associated with the production of food or dairy. Organizations must define and monitor critical points in the production process to avoid contamination where it might occur.
Accordingly, organizations are required to have full accountability throughout the food chain -from processing, packing and storing products, to transporting and finally distributing regulated food products to consumers. To this end, laboratory informatics continues to be critical in supporting the quality requirements of food and beverage organizations, providing data traceability, accessibility, reporting, and other critical capabilities necessary to ensure quality and regulatory compliance.
With many companies outsourcing manufacturing activities overseas and importing food ingredients from worldwide suppliers, having a state-of-the-start, sound informatics strategy in place that monitors and enforces quality across the global supply chain is more imperative than ever.
