Food-related app and food design processes can be very time-consuming, but they can also be incredibly important to ensure food safety, according to food design and technology expert and consultant, Michael Bierman.
Bierman has been helping clients across the world improve food safety and security for decades.
He said it’s crucial to understand what makes a successful food safety process, and to be able to design them to achieve this.
“It’s like having a chef, it’s just the same.
It’s about knowing your tools and the tools that you have,” he said.”
There’s no magic wand.
It all comes down to understanding what you have to do and what you want to do.”
He said the best way to do this is to understand the processes involved in food safety design, including food process validation, which is a process where you get to see how the process was done and to validate it for accuracy.
“You can test it, you can verify it and it’s very, very important that you’re looking at how it actually is,” he explained.
“In the case of food safety there’s a whole raft of different processes involved, from the process itself to the ingredients and the packaging to the process that’s being done.”
We’re trying to build a system where we can trust that it’s really going to work.
That’s really important.
If we don’t trust that, we can be really, really surprised and really have to change what we’re doing.
“Biermann said that even if you have an app that has a “food safety” aspect to it, it should also have a food-safety component.”
Food safety is about the whole food chain, it doesn’t just mean the food that goes into it,” he told ABC Radio Melbourne.”
If you have a restaurant, you want your staff to know what they’re getting into, they want to know that the food they’re going to be eating is safe.
“So you need to understand those processes and know what you’re getting in to, and you can also understand the people in the restaurant who are going to know about what they need to know.”
Those processes are incredibly important, but you have also got to know who’s in charge of these processes and what they do.
“Byrnes said it was essential to understand how food is processed and how food gets to your table.”
The key to food safety is that it can’t just be about food safety; it has to be about how food actually gets to the table,” he added.”
When you’re dealing with food, you have this huge ecosystem, it has all these different people who are responsible for different aspects of it, and it is absolutely critical that they are well-informed and well-managed.
“Berta de Sousa from the Food Safety Institute of Australia said it is important to understand all the different processes that go into food production.”
What’s important about the process of food production is it’s the whole process, the whole chain of supply, from raw materials, through to manufacturing, and then finally, finally the final product,” she said.
She said this means there’s an element of trust in the food system.”
This is where we want to have trust that the processes are really, truly safe and that the process is properly executed, that we’re taking all the information we have about food into account when we’re making our decisions, and that when we do make decisions we have the best chance of being safe.
“She said there are many different processes in the world that are used in food production, but the process by which food gets from one source to another has a significant impact on how food safety can be achieved.”
Because we all live in a world that is very interconnected, there is a lot of variation and variability in how food goes from one place to another,” she added.
Byrne said there is much more that can be done to improve food food safety.”
I think one of the key things that we can do is make sure we have an informed food safety program, an informed consumer program, and a informed business program,” he noted.”
And that’s where we need to get better at because if we don’s have the right information, then we have a much better chance of ensuring that we have food safety in the first place.
