Why food safety matters

Everyone deserves access to safe food. According to the WHO, each year sees 600 million people fall ill through eating contaminated foodstuffs. Safe food is vital concern and is the focus of more than 40% of our R&D projects.

Salmonella is on the rise

The European Food Safety Authority reports more than 100,000 cases of salmonellosis in humans in the EU every year.

Alternatives to antibiotics

Each year around 50,000 people die as a result of antimicrobial and antibiotic resistance, a problem that is being made far worse by the impact of intensive farming practices. 

Controlling mycotoxins

Some 25% of agricultural raw materials are contaminated with one or more mycotoxins, including the potent carcinogen aflatoxin. Eradicating this risk is now more important than ever.

Corn is a vital, staple food crop in many regions of the world and a major component in animal feed, but it is particularly prone to aflatoxin contamination. Find out more about Bühler’s contribution to the fight against aflatoxin.
