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. 

Keywords: Antibiotics, Bioremediation, Chemical contaminants, Food safety, Heavy metals, Inorganic compounds.
