Bioremediation is critical in eliminating and controlling environmental
contaminants in the ecosystem. This is crucial in the food industry where pollutants are
vast. The industry is moving towards novel sustainable food safety strategies and
techniques. Also, the nature-based solution should be at the forefront of innovations in
the food industry. This paper focuses on the application of bioremediation techniques
on chemical environmental contaminants and how the pollutants enter the food
production chain. Moreover, the impact of pollutants and the food safety risks on
humans and agricultural land are discussed.
