Abstract

Which are the effects on quality and safety of foodstuffs due to their journey from the producer to the consumer? This is the focus and challenge of the first step of the study discussed in this paper. In particular, it deals with the monitoring and analysis of shipments of olive oil, extra virgin olive oil and grapeseed oil, from Italy to different countries worldwide, e.g. Taiwan, USA and Japan. The aim is the identification of possible effects on foodstuffs, e.g. oil, due to transportation issues, shipment duration and condition, packaging decisions, etc. A case study presenting a critical shipment of different bottles of oil from Italy to Taiwan is illustrated. The results from a simulation analysis conducted on a sample of oil bottles following the monitored temperature are discussed. Oils in bottles, which have had a simulation of transport, have been analysed chemically and compared with not simulated ones of the same production batches.
