Ensuring Global Food Safety (2nd Ed.) Exploring Global Harmonization

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateurs : Martinovic Aleksandra, Oh Sangsuk, Lelieveld Huub

Since the publication of the first edition of Ensuring Global Food Safety, progress has been made to eliminate the regulatory barriers that contribute to the loss and waste of food due to regulatory differences that fail to differentiate between risk-benefit and risk-avoidance. The issue is far from fully solved, however, and as the world looks for ways to ensure food for its rapidly growing population, Ensuring Global Food Safety once more examines the policies and practices of food law which remain top contributors to food waste.

This fully revised and updated edition offers a rational and multi-faceted approach to the science-based issue of "what is safe for consumption?" and how creating a globally acceptable framework of microbiological, toxicological, and nutritional standards can contribute to the alleviation of hunger and food insecurity in the world. Currently many laws and regulations are such that healthy food is destroyed based on scientifically incorrect information upon which laws and regulations are based. Ensuring Global Food Safety illuminates the issue and offers guidelines for moving toward a scientifically sound approach to food safety regulation that can also improve food security without putting consumers at risk.



  • Presents the progress and current status of regulatory harmonization for food standards
  • Provides a science-based foundation for global regulatory consensus
  • Approaches the challenge from a risk-benefit approach while not ignoring need for safety assurance
  • Includes global perspectives from governmental, academic and industry experts
