PALOMINO-CAMARGO, Carolina; GONZALEZ-MUNOZ, Yuniesky; PEREZ-SIRA, Elevina  and  AGUILAR, Victor Hugo. Delphi methodology in food safety management and foodborne disease prevention. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2018, vol.35, n.3, pp.483-490. ISSN 1726-4634.

This review assesses the Delphi methodology as an expert consulting technique in the area of Public Health, particularly with a focus on food safety management and prevention of foodborne diseases, providing researchers with methodological information for its use. The data was compiled during January-August 2017 in the databases of Scopus, Medline, and Scielo. It was evidenced that, with the technological advances, the method shows an upturn, obtaining results in less time and cost of process, and a greater reach to distant experts, diversifying its applicability in Food Safety and ATS prevention. Among the main applications are: design of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) systems, a tool widely used to ensure that the food consumed does not cause any harm to the consumer, description of variables, processes, and situations related to good manufacturing practices and sanitary conditions in the food production and retail industry, useful for decision making.
