With about four million food-borne illnesses happening in Canada each year, food safety is an important public health issue. And because it involves various factors from farm to table, food safety is very complicated to secure. That’s why cooperation between the food industry, public health sectors and even consumers is needed to improve food safety. For instance, producers should avoid food contamination from environmental and human sources. To achieve a high degree of safety, food processors rely on modern sterilization, preservation and detection methods. These methods are based on molecular microbiology and biotechnology to reduce food contamination.
