A paramount research is focused nowadays on agrifood analysis, to ensure the commercialisation of safe products that meet the requirements of consumer perception. Food manufacturing processes might be threatened by contamination or lack of quality at each stage of the food supply chain while growing, processing, packaging, or distributing. Therefore, there is an increasing demand for fast and automatic analytical tools suitable for real-time control of food quality and safety through the whole chain. (Bio)sensors have high potential to this concern, being fast and sensitive analytical methods for the analysis of food composition and contamination, as well as for online process control. In this review, commercial (bio)sensors available for the agrifood sector are reported and compared in terms of their crucial features tailored for the different agrifood sector segments, including food analysis, process control, intelligent packaging, and smart agriculture. Moreover, an overview on the last trends in biosensor technologies is reported with the aim to enhance the biosensor performance and to develop newer sensor design and construction, fostering food production processes at high-quality standards.
