Food must be suitable for human consumption and must not be the cause of any health impairment or harm. Consumers trust that the food available is safe. Ensuring the faultless condition of food is the purpose of food safety. The main focus of the plans and precautions of food safety is hygiene when handling food during production, storage, transportation and other processing. Another, no less important, element of food safety is also the traceability of products. The aim of traceability is to prevent hazards to consumers by means of a product recall in the event of contaminated products.
