A high level of protection of public health is one of the fundamental objectives of food law as laid down in regulations (EC) No 178/2002 and 852/2004. Throughout the European Union (EU) consumers are requiring the food industry to provide them with an increasing range of safe, nutritious and healthy foods of high sensory quality and increased shelf life. To meet the demand for healthier food of high sensory quality, the use of additives and preservatives is being reduced or eliminated and minimal processing techniques introduced. To increase food safety and quality considerable amount of time, effort and money has been spent to food safety control and management (ISO 22000:2005) systems including better packaging methods and improved new pathogen detection methods.
