Food Safety and Quality

RESEARCH PROGRAMME

Food Safety and Quality

 

PROGRAMME SYNOPSIS

Food safety is an integral part and contributor to food security. It has received heightened attention worldwide as it is associated with death and suffering caused by unhealthy diet. The aims of the programme is to reduce food safety risk of human beings and live stocks along the food value-chain from farm to table, and to develop related analytical methods and detection tools. The research programme is multidisciplinary, dedicated to the generation of new knowledge through basic and applied research. The research focuses on the current and emerging pathogens, contaminants, adulterants, naturally occurring toxins, allergens, and also toxicology and risk assessment. The research could save the nation billions through cost reduction in people health care and social welfare, and increase market access of food, locally and for export. This research programme would be the only one in Malaysia and Southeast Asia focusing research in food safety and quality.
