Food and environmental safety represent major public health issues. The World Health Organization estimates that food borne and waterborne diarrhoeal diseases taken together kill about 2.2 million people annually, 1.9 millions of them are children (*).
The globalization of food production and trade is exponentially increasing the risk on international incidents involving contaminated food. Indeed, a large number of countries importing food products and ingredients.
To ensure its public health mission, Mérieux NutriSciences reinforces its commitment to address all concerns affecting the agri-food industry: guaranteeing the quality of raw materials and their environment, of food processing activities and ultimately, of the foods consumers buy. In this way, the group contributes to developing food products that offer real health benefits.
