Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Microbiological quality is a major concern in the food industry because of the acute risk to health posed by bacteria. Concerns have been raised repeatedly regarding the contamination of bacteria. Postharvesting is a critical control point with major effects on the chemical and microbiological characteristics of food. The prevention of microbial contamination in food requires good hygiene practices and hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP) at all stages of production. This Special Issue mainly publish research concerning food contamination, food safety and quality control in food processing. Maintaining good microbiological quality of food is a key priority for both food suppliers and consumers. This Special Issue will publish high-quality, original research papers in the overlapping fields of:

  • Microbial contaminants and food safety;
  • Detection, sterilization and intervention methods;
  • Chemical and biochemical contaminants;
  • Food safety preventative control measures;
  • Food safety risk assessment.
