Authors are continuing to analyze factors which influence on three food essential elements: food safety, food security and food quality. There are discus about innovation in food technology, nanotechnologies, and food packaging. Novel sensing technologies using bio or nano materials can be used to detect quality and safety attributes in packaged foods. These sensing technologies range from rapid non-destructive and non-contact to highly specialized micro and nano-biosensing structures. In addition, the authors analyze the latest research on the application of biosensors to measure
parameters that affect the safety and quality of products.Future priorities for research in food science should build on the existing knowledge base and extend the impact of basic and strategic research in delivering high quality foods and food products and improving human health.

Key words: Food safety, Food security, Nanotechnologies, Biosensors, Food research priorities
