Research on science and technology policy has heavily relied on patent data. However, relatively few studies of food safety patent activity appear in scholarly literature. This paper provides a discussion on patents as a measure of new knowledge generation in the food safety sector. In so doing, there are inherent challenges to identifying a research taxonomy for this multidisciplinary area. To overcome these challenges, the paper uses a natural language approach that can be applied to other research areas where boundaries of fields are not well defined.
