Samenvatting

Decision support systems (DSS) for controlling multiple food safety hazards in raw milk production have not yet been developed, but the underlying components are fragmentarily available. This article presents the state-of-the-art of essential DSS elements for judging food safety compliance of raw milk. The DSS elements include data identification at critical points in the supply chain, an information management system, and data exchange. Based on these elements, a concept for further development of a DSS is presented. These elements have to be integrated in the dairy chain to prevent inefficient sampling and analysis. Such a DSS would enhance food safety.
