Food safety and food quality are central attributes for the food industry (Bunney et al., 2017a). These two important concepts and safety for food, have a vital function in promoting health and well-being. Therefore, the satisfaction of consumer requirements and to provide the highest quality in food standards, food production and processing, and distribution in the food-manufacturing chain requires a careful management plan and forward-thinking strategies. If these strategies and plans for food quality and safety is not taken seriously enough, contaminants can enter the food-chain and therefore compromised health and wellbeing will transpire. The source on contamination can come from several sources such as: bacterial contamination (Oliver et al., 2005), pesticide (Carvalho, 2017) and veterinary drug use, mycotoxins (Zinedine and El Akhdari, 2019). Many analytical procedures and instruments to analyze food quality are established to detect analytes in food matrices and the components of food. After all, food is a complex matrix of chemicals in the form of, atoms, molecules, ions, and organisms all requiring discriminate analysis, but for food, also requiring excellent sensitivity and selectivity for each of theses contaminants.
