About Environmental Monitoring

  • With increased awareness on major recalls and changing regulations and international standards, we're seeing a shift in testing. Focus of food testing has traditionally been on raw materials and end product, but a preventative focus through testing the food processing environment can help identify and correct potential issues before they lead to a major problem or recall.

    Developed in partnership with Cornell University and other key industry experts, there is now a definitive resource for environmental monitoring in the food and beverage industries. Based on science, this handbook provides guidance on building and implementing a comprehensive environmental monitoring program.
