Progress in food technology, the globalization of trade, and shifts in our eating habits have created new conditions for the production and consumption of food. Not only are food chains becoming increasingly global, they are also becoming more and more complex, often leading to health risks in food supply. Information on origin, quality, and safety of the food we eat every day is therefore equally important for both consumers and the food industry.
