The method of food processing offers many possibilities for contamination at different levels. The consequence of inappropriate use of agrochemicals, fertilizers, and pesticides in the field, and antibiotics and anti-parasitic agents in animal agriculture will lead to unsafe compounds in food products. Also, the bacteria and harmful microorganisms contaminate foods that can be spread through sub-optimal storage and transport processes. In food production, the use of unlawful additives will further contaminate food products. The difficulties and time-consuming to trace the origin of the commodity due to complicated long supply chain where involved the processes from raw materials to the final customer lead to great attention from academic researchers to study on the food and agricultural supply chain.
