Standardization of operation and storage of food products
Dec 4, 2020
Food products have always held key positions as consumer products in the national and international market. Over time, the exchange of technology, export and import and began to expand their scope. It is to regulate this process that international standards were created that regulate the clarity of the implementation of quality control and exchange of products. Most countries need to purchase food products such as cereals and their derivatives. But rules and regulations may differ from state to state, thus creating gaps and inconsistencies that hinder globalization of markets. It is for this that international standards are being introduced in export-import operations. Today we introduce you to some of the most key documents in the industry.

The food industry encompasses a very large number of categories and subcategories. Since its regulation occurs both at the global and at the local level, considering this area, it is necessary to understand that its control is carried out both in the part where it comes to the production of products, their use and preparation, as well as the technologies used in the above-mentioned processes. Since food technologies are primarily responsible for human health, therefore, special attention is paid to their regulation. To create a clear regulatory framework for the food industry, a large number of international standards have been created. If your company operates in the service sector that comes into contact with food, we recommend that you pay attention to the list of international standards below

Animal and vegetable products are eaten every day in huge quantities. If we consider this issue on a global scale, this industry, like any other in our time, does not stand still and includes the introduction and operation of new equipment, technologies, and methods of food processing. Despite the fact that certain innovations can significantly increase the productivity of production processes and also improve financial performance, do not forget that this category of human activity is primarily aimed at creating conditions for the healthy functioning of the body of each person, and as a result, requires standardization, creation rules and regulations. One of the international institutions that is engaged in the standardization of this issue is ISO. Today we will introduce you to some of the most recent and relevant documents of the aforementioned industry.

The food industry is the market sector that produces essential goods. Globalization and technological advances are helping to improve production processes in many ways. But at the same time, they make production more complex and demanding more attention, as well as clear regulation. We are aware of the many challenges you have to deal with in order to control such a diverse food production. The scaling up of production processes makes it increasingly difficult to control the quality and safety of manufactured products. Unsafe food containing harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites, or harmful chemicals can cause serious illness. In order to prevent this, all technological processes and the result of activities must be checked. In this regard, it is necessary to have the same regulations common to the entire industry, which will help to unify the requirements for the food chain. All processes in food production must strictly comply with international standards in order for the products to be safe for consumption. Today we have selected for you several standards that relate to the regulation of the food industry. They describe the requirements for testing products for the presence of unsafe substances for the human body.

The food industry has always been and will continue to be one of the most important market segments, as its main task is to satisfy basic needs. The main feature of this field of activity is that the products produced by it are in direct contact with the body of the end consumer. Thus, the presence of unsafe micro-organisms in foodstuffs can cause great harm to health. Of course, in drawing these conclusions, we take into account not only food for people, but also food for animals. It is worth noting that animal feed must, in the same way as food for humans, undergo research to confirm their safety for the body. It is especially worth emphasizing the importance of analyzing food products, based on the huge variety of microorganisms that, for one reason or another, can get into their composition. Each microorganism, microbiotic strain or other substance that can be found in food can pose a separate potential threat. Therefore, each type of food product must undergo its own multi-level verification. In order to unify these analyzes, as well as to ensure safety and quality, international standards are being created that are constantly updated taking into account new microbiological discoveries. The information that we have prepared for you in this article will help you increase your competitiveness in the market, as well as strengthen your position.

Food production requires careful control and constant inspection of finished products. Most strongly, this is true if we are talking about mass production, which in turn complicates the process of controlling the production of products, especially when you consider the automation of production processes. The scientific and technological process greatly simplifies production and makes it much easier for human labor, however, at the same moment, new threats arise. Such potential threats include, for example, the ingress of hazardous substances into the finished product for the human body, or it may be an excess of the permissible concentration of certain substances. Therefore, given the potential danger, it is necessary to have a mechanism for analyzing the finished product. It is also worth noting that at this stage, difficulties may arise due to the fact that science now knows a very large number of potentially dangerous microorganisms for the human body, or animals, when it comes to animal feed. Food manufacturers should pay due attention to the issues of testing their products and have a clear methodology for analyzing their products. In order to simplify the functioning of manufacturing companies, international standards are being created that regulate the analysis of finished products for the content of certain microorganisms, some of which we have collected in this article.

The food industry is the segment of the economy that will always be in demand from the consumer, since these goods are classified as essential. Therefore, competition in this segment has always been and will be very high, given the large number of manufacturers of each type of product. Companies that manufacture food products have a lot of external factors that can affect their competitive position in the market. In addition to a large number of players in this market, among other things, the quality and safety of manufactured products play an important role. It is worth noting that the consumer, who has a decisive vote in determining the market leader, pays attention to the safety of the product. If you look at the situation from the side of the buyer, then it becomes obvious that high-quality products that are safe for the human body, which means they have passed all the necessary tests and meet international quality standards, will become more popular. When we say that each product, taking into account its specifics, must be subjected to rigorous testing in the laboratory, we mean that food manufacturers need to be guided by generally accepted norms in their work. In order to systematize the verification process in the field of food technology, international standards are being created that describe the methodologies for verifying finished products, as well as the production technology itself. The multitude of standards in food technology is justified by the large number and variety of products produced, which means that each of them requires a special approach.
