The impact of major recalls, increased consumer awareness, changing regulations and international standards is driving a shift in food safety and quality strategies. While the focus of food testing has traditionally been on raw materials and finished product, a preventive approach through testing the food processing environment can help identify and correct potential issues before they lead to a major problem or recall.
Developed in partnership with Cornell University and other industry experts, there is now a comprehensive resource for environmental monitoring in the food and beverage industries. Based on industry practice and a scientific approach, this handbook provides guidance on building and implementing a holistic environmental monitoring program.
3M solutions and products have been internationally recognized and validated for their ingenious methods and innovation.
Third-party validations such as AOAC confirm that the method has been scrutinized to prove that it is reliable, repeatable and has performed equal to or better than the reference method to which it was compared. 3M Food Safety takes these programs very seriously, and we have completed over:
- 20 AOAC International Official Methods of Analysis (OMA) Validations
- 14 AOAC Performance Tested Method (PTM) Certifications
- 19 NF VALIDATION by AFNOR Certifications
In partnership with Cornell University and other industry experts, 3M has developed the Environmental Monitoring Handbook for the Food and Beverage Industries – a comprehensive guide to help you build and enhance your environmental monitoring program

Did you know that environmental monitoring can be used to improve product quality, reduce spoilage, and extend shelf life?
Effective environmental monitoring programs can help to reduce risk of recalls, extend product shelf life, streamline production and increase customer satisfaction. Join Dr. Martin Wiedmann of Cornell University for a 5-part environmental monitoring learning pathway designed to step through levels of content from beginner, to intermediate and advanced.
These courses are beneficial for companies starting to implement environmental monitoring programs, companies working through implementation and its challenges, as well as companies who have an existing program and are looking for ways to enhance it.
