Safe Food for All: Key Challenges and Process Requirements
- 3 Downloads
Safe food is nutriment that is fit for human consumption. Food safety pertains to the entire set of processes that prevent and monitor foods from acquiring any foodborne hazards from the “farm to fork.” While food security ensures that no one in the world goes hungry or malnourished, food safety further ensures that the food is devoid of chemical, physical, and biological hazards that will not harm the consumer when it is prepared and/or eaten according to its intended use. Farmers need to follow good agricultural practices (GAP) and food traceability systems to certify that grown foods are safe and wholesome as well as reduce food rejections and wastage. Food manufacturers are also required to have good manufacturing practices (GMP) and proper food safety management systems (FSMS) in their processing plants to assure safe foods to consumers.
