Book Description :

Ensuring Global Food Safety: Exploring Global Harmonization, Second Edition, 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 multifaceted 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 so stringent that healthy food is destroyed based on scientifically incorrect information upon which laws and regulations are based. This book illuminates these issues, offering 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 challenges from a risk-benefit approach, also including safety assurance Includes global perspectives from governmental, academic and industry experts

Book Description :

Biological agents, bacteria, viruses and parasites can, directly or indirectly, contaminate food. Similarly chemicals such as veterinary drugs used to combat animal illnesses, mycotoxins particularly aflatoxins, pesticides and environmental contaminants (e.g. dioxins, heavy metals) in animal feeds can also be a source contamination of food. Contamination of agricultural, animal and fish products is the result of the presence of human pathogenic bacteria and/or toxic substances, which can contaminate products in any part of the production chain. Examples are of the presence of a wide range of pathogens such as Salmonella spp., pathogenic Escherichia coli and Shigella, hepatitis A virus on fresh fruits and vegetables, E. coli O157:H7 in meats, Campylobacter spp., Brucella spp. in milk, Vibrio sp. and ciguatera toxin in fish. Thus the importance of good practices at the primary production level to prevent diseases and infections in animals, minimize risk of transmission to humans and/or contamination of food as well as to ensure animal health and welfare. The authors address three main primary production systems and the challenges to reduce the safety threats inherent to each. Good animal farming, fish health and good agricultural practices are described extensively so as to provide a clear picture of the complexity of the food production chains and the many factors that need to be under control to ensure the safety of food products.

Book Description :

The HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) system is still recognised internationally as the most effective way to produce safe food throughout the supply chain, but a HACCP system cannot operate in a vacuum. It requires prerequisite programmes to be in place and it can be highly affected by, or dependent upon, other major considerations such as animal, plant, human and environmental health, food security and food defence. This book: Provides a practical and up-to-date text covering the essentials of food safety management in the global supply chain, giving the reader the knowledge and skills that they need to design, implement and maintain a world-class food safety programme. Builds on existing texts on HACCP and food safety, taking the next step forward in the evolution of HACCP and providing a text that is relevant to all sectors and sizes of food businesses throughout the world. Shares practical food safety experience, allowing development of best-practice approaches. This will allow existing businesses to improve their systems and enable businesses that are new to HACCP and food safety management requirements in both developed and developing countries to build on existing knowledge for more rapid application of world-class food safety systems. Educates practitioners such that they will be able to use their judgement in decision-making and to influence those who make food policy and manage food operations. This book is an essential resource for all scientists and managers in the food industry (manufacturing and foodservice); regulators and educators in the field of food safety; and students of food science and technology.

Book Description :

Fruits, vegetables and herbs are agricultural products that could be contaminated with biological, chemical or physical hazards. Contamination could occur in the growing environment, after harvest, during preparation for storage and processing, in shipping to the market, in food service establishments, and/or in the home. The increasing number of produce-related outbreaks in industrialized countries has raised awareness to interventions that remove human pathogens from fresh produce. However, contamination of produce has always been a concern in the developing regions of the world which lack basic sanitary conditions. Chlorinated water has been widely used to sanitize fresh produce, but not enough to ensure the microbial safety of produce. The efficacy of several other chemical agents has been evaluated as potential alternatives to chlorine. Also, alternatives or modified methods have been also proposed such as MAP, irradiation, pulsed energy processing, etc.; however, none have yet gained widespread acceptance by the industry. To date the most important measures to ensure safety of fruits and vegetables remains prevention of contamination through the application of systems such as GAP.

Book Description :

This book, written by global experts, provides a comprehensive and topical analysis on the economics of chocolate. While the main approach is economic analysis, there are important contributions from other disciplines, including psychology, history, government, nutrition, and geography. The chapters are organized around several themes, including the history of cocoa and chocolate — from cocoa drinks in the Maya empire to the growing sales of Belgian chocolates in China; how governments have used cocoa and chocolate as a source of tax revenue and have regulated chocolate (and defined it by law) to protect consumers' health from fraud and industries from competition; how the poor cocoa producers in developing countries are linked through trade and multinational companies with rich consumers in industrialized countries; and how the rise of consumption in emerging markets (China, India, and Africa) is causing a major boom in global demand and prices, and a potential shortage of the world's chocolate.
