The food industry has been growing rapidly over the last decade. Never before have people had the number of options we have now when it comes to choosing, storing and preparing food. However, with great power comes great responsibility – the food industry can spread diseases to masses of people more rapidly than ever.
Public health is a main concern for food industries nowadays. Millions of dollars are wasted in lawsuits every year in the food industry, filed by angry customers demanding a higher level of hygiene from the industry. In order to align facilities with higher hygiene-compliance standards and avoid preventable crises, the food industry must adjust and overcome obstacles. Managers in the food industry are faced with great challenges, such as educating and ensuring their staff members are compliant with current hygiene regulations.
