Abstract

The perception of the consumer is changing significantly nowadays and has become more oriented toward food safety and quality. The customers demand products that are nutritious, healthy and cost effective, and processed under hygienic conditions. The concept of food safety is now gaining importance and the demand of food safety and quality assurance is increasing now. Trading of the dairy products in the domestic market and across international borders requires food safety and quality. Several government organizations/agencies work in ensuring the food quality assurance and safety. Some of these organizations are World Health Organization, World Trade Organization, Codex Alimentarius Commission, USFDA, FSSAI, and so on, engaged in safeguarding the consumer’s interest and play an important role in defining the standards for different food commodities. In this chapter, we will discuss such regulatory bodies in detail.
