In the last decade, modern food technology has ensured that supermarket shelves are stacked with new ingenious and exciting food ranges. This is all very nice for the consumer but it has presented some headaches for quality control personnel. Consumer expectations are now very high and the race to satisfy these expectations has sometimes been at the sacrifice of quality control: an obvious example is the increasing incidence of food poisoning. What is more, as we approach a single common European market there is additional pressure from the EC to conform to community standards of food quality.
