Abstract: One of the significant challenges for the future is to guarantee safe food for all inhabitants of the planet. During the last 15 years, very important fraud issues like the '2013 horse meat scandal' and the '2008 Chinese milk scandal' have greatly affected the food industry and public health. One of the alternatives for this issue consists of increasing production, but to accomplish this, it is necessary that innovative options be applied to enhance the safety of the food supply chain. For this reason, it is quite important to have the right infrastructure in order to manage data of the food safety sector and provide useful analytics to Food Safety Experts. In this paper, we describe Agroknow's Big Data Platform architecture and examine its scalability for data management and experimentation.
