A FLEDGLING UK-based company specialising in mycotoxin detection systems generated huge interest at the XXXI World Nut and Dried Fruit Congress in Singapore last month. ToxiMet, led by Ray Coker, Emeritus Professor of Food Safety at the University of Greenwich, and Dr. Siro Perez, has developed a product called ToxiQuant that it says can accurately identify a range of toxins much faster than existing systems. At the Singapore event, ToxiMet generated leads from 33 countries and over 70 companies, Perez told FOODNEWS . “The conference was a major success in terms of sales leads, but it also confirmed that mycotoxins are a huge problem globally, and that our system is a major innovation demanded by the market,” he said.
