relating to food safety issues, which are all attributed to
different factors. Today, with the increase in knowledge and
available databases on food safety issues, the world is witnessing
tremendous efforts towards the development of new, economical and
environmentally-friendly techniques for maintaining the quality of
perishable foods and agro-based commodities. The intensification of
food safety concerns reflects a major global awareness of foods in
world trade. Several recommendations have been put forward by
various world governing bodies and committees to solve food safety
issues, which are all mainly targeted at benefiting consumers. In
