Abstract

In the sixties concern about fall-out of nuclear weapon tests grew in the Netherlands. As a result of this, the Ministry of Agriculture ordered the installation of food monitoring systems in dairy factories to monitor the levels of radioactivity in Dutch milk, which resulted in the National Monitoring Network for Radioactivity in Food (LMRV).
After the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 the LMRV was modernised and the scope broadened to other food and feed products. WFSR – Wageningen Food Safety Research continuously improves the LMRV, which is a vital part of the Dutch emergency response network.
