The Netherlands has created a large nitrogen pollution problem in its soils, which is harming biodiversity. By intensifying and industrialized farming, by importing animal feed for dairy production and fertilizer for crop farming, too much nitrogen has accumulated in the soil.

Supply chain actors actively...

Street Food markets have been a key ingredient of the urban life for centuries.

The Nederlandse- Voedsel en Warenautoriteit (NVWA) asked the at-first-sight simple question of how to combine risk-based and random methods for inspection.

Food safety inspections play an important role in the safety of consumers of food products.
