Answer Important Questions

Creme Food Safety provides the information you need to answer the important questions, such as:

  • What is the potential consumer impact of my products?
  • I have pesticide and contaminant monitoring results, what does this mean for consumers?
  • How can I calculate aggregate exposure of consumers to crop protection chemicals from their total consumption habits?
  • What foods or agricultural commodities are contributing most to consumer intake of chemicals?
  • What are the most highly exposed demographics (age, region, gender, etc)?
