Food Irradiation

A very recent development, food irradiation involves the use of ionizing radiations as treatment. It is said to be one of the most potent modes of ensuring food safety and additionally increases the shelf-life of food. The most important advantage of irradiation is that it kills all micro-organisms that would otherwise cause foodborne illnesses in humans, which is responsible for 5000 deaths globally each year, despite the high standards we have reached with respect to food safety. At Food Summit 2019, this special track aims to discuss the latest developments in this field.
