Safe food supply is a challenge worldwide due to the presence of spoilage and pathogenic microorganisms, which has bewitched food processing and supply industries. High nutritional content of food provides an ideal growth environment for microorganisms. Food must maintain its integrity throughout machine filling, packaging, sealing, freezing, storage and transportation. In order to enhance the shelf life of food products reduction in microbial load is essential. Microbial contamination in food industry can occur from a range of bacteria and microorganisms at any stage from raw material to packaging & consumption. Contamination sources can be numerous including workers hands, raw material, production line, air, water, packaging material, storage and transportation conditions & equipment. Microbial contamination causes odor, change in color and stains in products which can lead to reduction in shelf life, food spoilage and wastage. Contaminated products can contaminate other products as well during storage, transportation, on shelf and before consumption. The microbial contamination of products in food industry can also be a health hazard for workers, end users and eventually it leads towards shortcoming for the business and negative reputation of the industry. In U.S annual loss of $200 million is traced back to microbial contamination of meat and meat products only. Common microbes associated with food contamination are E. coli, Staphylococcus, Salmonella, Clostridium, Listeria etc. and can cause serious infections like food poisoning vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, dysentery, fever, headache etc.and even death in severe cases. Therefore, it is very essential for food industries to reduce the chance of bacterial and microbial contamination throughout supply chain.
