According to the Codex Alimentarius Commission of the United Nations, a food is regarded as safe "If it doesn't cause harm to the consumer when prepared and/or eaten according to its intended use". This entails that food should be free from contaminants, adulterants, naturally occurring toxins and all those substances which might have adverse effects on human health.
Right from the earliest days of human existence, access to good quality food, in particular safe food has been one of the most pressing and critical questions for the mankind. Through centuries of ignorance, experience and trial-and-error methodology, we have learnt that safe food is not just a fundamental precondition for human survival but is also inherently and indispensably linked with social, economic and ethical facets of our lives. Today, nations all around the world acknowledge that without surety of the safe food, prosperity in its collective sense is a far cry. Based on such concrete conclusions, it is now of utmost importance that we augment our understanding regarding the current world scenario and re-evaluate our strategic approach that will be required to unknot the complexities of providing safer and healthier food to every human being in the world through high quality analysis to ensure food safety.
This analysis include fruit research, pesticide testing, pesticide residue analysis, MRL testing, food safety testing, patulin testing, fruit quality management, maturity indexing and other related aspects.
Over the last few decades, the question of ensuring adequate food safety standards has evolved into a much more complicated problem with a series of interconnected factors to be considered. On one hand, the scientific and technological advancements such as the development of high precision analytical equipments and improved agricultural and preservation techniques like those used by Hortec have made it possible for us to evaluate and eradicate many of the existing potential safety hazards. Yet on the other hand, some of the modern scientific practices such as increased usage of chemicals and other additives have also introduced such detrimental changes in the entire food supply chains which were never envisaged in the entire history.
This being said, it is important to ensure food, fruit and other agricultural produce are adequately analyzed to ensure safety of consumers. That is why companies like Hortec have taken it upon themselves to cater for this through the use of high quality and precision tools to provide food safety related testing to the fresh produce and other food producing industries. They also provide testing for pesticide residues in fresh produce, testing of undesirable residues like mycotoxins and food dyes in various food commodities as well as provision of fruit quality and maturity management services to fruit producers, pack houses and exporters to ensure human safety.
