Certain foodborne diseases are considered emergent because they have recently become more frequent. Diseases transmitted by food are posing new threats for several reasons, including the increased international trade and travel, the adaptation of micro-organisms and changes in food production systems, as well as the demography and human behaviors.


Synthetic or natural food contaminants can be found at all stages of food chain, from farm to fork. Food-borne pathogens can cause severe diarrhea or systemic infections, including meningitis. Furthermore, chemical contamination can also lead to severe intoxications or chronic diseases. Uncooked food, fruits and vegetables contaminated by fecal materials, as well as sea foods containing biotoxins, are considered as unsafe foods for consumption.


Environmental stress factors such as conservation methods contribute to the increase of foodborne pathogen’s diversity by making them more resistant and virulent. This pathogen’s diversity complicate their detection and identification and requires the improvement of existing methods. New sensitive molecular techniques are very promising for the development of routine methods and rapid analysis kits.


The effectiveness of Food Safety Management System (FSMS) is essential for consumer’s protection. In addition, these systems play a pivotal role in international food safety. FSMS improve the quality of food chain which facilitates the international trading according to national and international requirements. The use of bioactive molecules such as Essential Oils (EOs) and Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) including probiotics are currently good alternatives to the chemical preservatives.
