The main task of the ECOS project is combating the global problem of sale of poor-quality, dangerous, counterfeit and illegal products, their sale and distribution in the world industry of food products and drinks, especially alcoholic ones, since they are very liable to adulteration today.
Poor-quality and dangerous food products and drinks have always been taken by people as a serious issue. As of today, expired and fake food products are a reason of emergence of various intoxicants and diseases, which is especially relevant for infants and young children, elderly and sickly people. The safety of food products and drinks (including alcoholic ones) is one of the most acute problems on the planet because it relates not only to the national health but also inuences the global economy in general. The quality of food products and drinks inuences people’s living standard, their social activity and demographic aspect - birthrate and increase in population. Therefore, in order to ensure a high and long-lasting living standard, states have to give a particular emphasis to food safety.
