Is there a microbiologist in the house? With food safety demands increasing, we look at how many food and beverage processors are putting safety in the hands of scientists, not just quality assurance personnel. That's the cover story for March Food Processing, but we also have stories on the movement to non-animal sources of protein; the FDA's new definition of fiber; maintenance as a good first step toward the Industrial Internet of Things; and motor-drive power options. And our new Team/Cross-functional story looks at pet foods.
We also include our usual departments of news, commentary, new consumer products and John Stanton's view of marketing.
