    Food scares lead to loss of consumer confidence and trust and to new challenges for industry and policy makers alike. Being able to react fast, efficiently and effectively in times of a (potential) food safety crisis is therefore very important. This article describes some key emerging food safety and quality topics that have been identified by the MoniQA emerging issues working group. These include the 2008 melamine crisis, the detection of dioxin in Irish pork, clenuterol and nanotechnology/nanofoods.
