In today’s fast-paced world, consumers are regularly looking for convenient, ready-to-eat food products that can match the pace of the ‘on the go’ lifestyle. From a variety of crackers, spreads, pastries, and sauces, the choices presented to consumers are endless. While this sector of the food industry is highly lucrative, it does come with its own set of risks.
The Risks Involved
Due to the use of numerous raw ingredients and the complex preparation and packaging processes, ready-to-eat food products carry a high risk of material contamination. This is a huge cause for concern as ready-to-eat products are consumed straight out of the packaging without the need for cooking, presenting an even higher risk of injury to your customers. Given these factors, it’s no wonder that ready-to-eat products were the most recalled food product in 2014.
