Meat and fish processing industry consists of a fair number of subsets linked to the processing phases. The industrial chain in fact includes the breeding of animals, slaughtering, processing and transformation, seasoning/ripening, cooking and finally packaging. In Europe, meat intended for human consumption must come from animals which have been submitted by an official veterinarian ante mortem and post-mortem visiting inspection which attests to the health and fitness of the meat. Despite its benefits, seafood consumption can cause allergic reactions, infection, or intoxication; these are frequent especially in countries like Italy with high seafood consumption or traditions of eating seafood raw. Thus the controls in this industry segment are aimed at ensuring microbiological/chemical safety and prevention of fraud and sophistication but also the health and welfare of the animal. We included in this category also eggs and egg products industry.
