Food risk ranking

MPI's comparative risk-ranking process is being developed to manage both chemical and microbiological food safety risks. Risk ranking or comparative risk assessment is the process of comparing risks and ordering or grading them in some way.

Developing a risk-ranking method

The MPI Food Science and Risk Assessment Group has developed a single metric of risk ranking that can be applied to both chemical and microbiological hazards. This is an ongoing, iterative process as methods and experience develops. The work is not restricted to actual ranking of food safety issues and is pertinent to the varied risk-ranking needs of MPI.
