Micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungi and viruses are ubiquitous in the environment. In part, their presence is necessary for the processing of products (fermentation and ripening) and in part, their presence as pathogens and the causes of rot and decay is unwanted.
Sufficient knowledge of the microbiological status of the foodstuff is necessary to be able to evaluate its quality. In Switzerland, this assessment is based on the Federal Law on Foodstuffs and Consumer Products, the Food Hygiene Ordinance of the Swiss Federal Department of Home Affairs (HyV). If there are no statutory regulations, the evaluation can be carried out in accordance with the recommendations of recognised expert groups (The German Society for Hygiene and Microbiology, DGHM).
