Food safety and security is a growing research area due to increasing demand of food across the globe. Customers now-a-days are more conscious about their health. In the past, many cases regarding food containment and adulteration raised the concern about safety and security of the food supply companies. To minimize these concerns, IT based technologies can play an important role. In the present chapter, nine such IT based technologies were identified through review of the extant literature. Furthermore, the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) approach is used to rank the identified IT technologies based on their priority. Sensitivity analysis is also performed to check the robustness of the model. Radio frequency identification technology holds the first rank on the priority list.
