A review of quality control methods and applications of multivariate statistical techniques on the authentication and classification of agricultural products is presented. The products reported within the frame of this article were vegetables, fruits, juices, jams, wines, cereals, bakery products, oils, tea, coffee, honey, sugar-syrups, salad dressings, and gums. The perspective of multivariate statistics as a promising tool to authenticate and classify these food products according to their geographical origin or variety was demonstrated. Several representative figures and informative synoptical tables for agricultural food products were provided both for the quality control methods employed and the multivariate analyses implemented.
