Abstract

One major challenge for the twenty-first century will be the production of sufficient food. As the world population grows by, food productivity must increase. It will be important to enhance productivity and to reduce food waste. One of the possible paths to reach this goal is to control the production in real time. This will allow to act promptly if something is changing food in an unexpected way along the whole food chain. In addition, consumers may want to have information concerning a geographical origin, ripening level, a guarantee of authenticity and, even more important, information concerning the level of quality or wholesomeness of the product. These aims can be reached through to the use of a technology based on MOX chemical sensors, which could be truly revolutionary in the agri-food field. Four aspects have been considered: quality of water, authenticity of common adulterated foods and identification of food pathogens.
