The past few years have witnessed a resurgence in demand for and the development of methods and techniques for assuring the quality, authenticity, and safety of food. Much of this need is born out of major food scandals, globalisation, and the increasing complexity of the food supply chain. Fortunately, this has coincided with significant advances in instrumentation, where isotopic and other techniques play a significant role. Recently The ERA Chair ISO-FOOD for isotopic techniques in food quality safety and traceability, Jožef Stefan Institute, Slovenia organised the first ISO-FOOD International Symposium on Isotopic and Other Techniques in Food Safety and Quality held in Portorož, Slovenia (1-3 April 2019). It aimed to highlight recent advances in food safety and quality and to explore the opportunities and challenges ahead.

This special issue of Food and Chemical Toxicology FCT invites you to join contributors from the ISOFOOD2019 Symposium to publish your work (original or review papers) to the peer-reviewed Special Issue on Advances Isotopic and Other Techniques in Food Safety and Quality. The issue will focus on food authenticity and traceability, food safety and quality, foodomics, nanotoxicology, metrology and food databases and semantics.

Submission deadline: September 30 2019
