About Us

Food safety and the importance of traceability have become pertinent issues in recent years. The number of 'food scares' have grown enormously over the past decade; imported foods found to contain dangerous contaminants such as drugs, dyes and bacterial toxins are now reported frequently.  As demands from consumers and regulators grow regarding food safety, the need to develop technologies to detect contaminants within food has increased.  

Producing safe, assured and traceable food within ASSET begins at the farm with improving animal health, looks towards making the supply chain safer using advanced sensor technology and delivers unique ways of tracing our food production back to its origin using novel fingerprinting technology.
