Food Safety - The Last Mile (FSA05)

When you’re munching your favorite meal, you probably don’t think about the journey your food’s been on. But look closely, and you’ll likely find that every ingredient has traveled some distance to get to you. But as food moves along the supply chain, the risk of contamination grows. And one of the biggest danger points for contamination is in the “last mile.”

The “last mile” is food’s final journey from the supply chain to its arrival to the consumer. And if proper food safety techniques aren’t followed here, food could become dangerous. So, making sure food reaches the consumer in great condition needs to be a number-1 priority for the food industry.
