Europe Leads the Way: Traceability is Key in Food Safety
- Read Whitepaper
European authorities and producers have been held to higher standards for food quality than any other region worldwide, and the results have matched the regulation: Europe has one of the lowest levels of food contamination in the world.
What makes Europe´s success so remarkable is how complex the system is: Despite stricts regulations enforced to protect more than 500 million people, compliance takes place without interfering with the independence of the EU´s 27 sovereign nations. Such a structure would be impossible without a massive technology infrastructure and investment in state-of-the-art data management technologies, including laboratory information management systems (LIMS), which are widely used by industry and governments to structure laboratory sampling, analysis and reporting tasks and integrate food quality data across vast enterprise systems.
