“Food safety and quality, also evolving home food delivery technology”
The food home delivery business is exploding. While most companies and consumers have never worried about food safety when ordering Pizza or Chinese foods by telephone, the home food delivery market has now reached a $46 billion level and is expected to hit over $76 billion per year by 2022. But the business models for food delivery have taken many different directions and the lack of government guidance or oversight has allowed for the proliferation of delivery models shown to be clearly ignorant and in disregard of food safety and food quality requirements.
Ordering food for delivery by mail or UPS is a clearly established business model. Recent research has begun to analyze delivery models and these early studies have shown that the complete lack of regulation and control allows for perishable meats, poultry, and restaurant meals to be delivered without adequate sanitation, temperature, and other food safety controls.
While the Food and Drug Administration’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) has focused on farms, distribution, transportation, imports and other issues related to large scale long distance supply chains, FSMA rules leave the consumer end up to local or state laws that have not kept up with the changing market. Most fast food restaurant and retail chains have experienced food recall on a gigantic scale that has damaged their reputations, cost millions of dollars of losses in business and on the stock market. At this point, neither the industry nor government has begun to explore or realize the potential for rapid uncontrolled and unsafe home food delivery to impact human health. Food supply chain members delivering ingredients into the home delivery market have under FSMA rules unwittingly entered what is an uncontrolled food safety environment that leaves them, as suppliers, open to new liabilities not previously recognized.
