In spite of potential benefits that nanotechnology offers in the agri food sector food production feed for livestock food ingredients packaging and nanobased smart systems little is known on safety aspects of the application of nanotechnologies in food production and the incorporation of nanoparticles in food. Nanotechnology applications in the agriculture and food sector image c nanowerk specifically in agriculture technical innovation is of importance with regard to addressing global challenges such as population growth climate change and the limited availability of important plant nutrients such as phosphorus and potassium. In part one the fundamentals of nanotechnology applied to the agri food sector are discussed in particular intermolecular interactions and self assembly of macromolecules in part two the basics applications of nanotechnology in the agri food sector are identified. Nanotechnology applications in agri feed food and potential impacts on safety nanotechnology in the agri feed food sector enables the development and production of products or ingredients at the nanometre scale with new beneficial properties rikilt and jrc 2014 as summarised in fig 1. Food preservation volume six the latest in the nanotechnology in the agri food industry series discusses how nanotechnology can improve and control the growth of pathogenic and spoilage compounds to improve food safety and quality
