UNAPCAEM Policy Brief (Issue No.3, January 2008): Food Safety Issues in Agricultural Trade


Food safety is now one of the most urgent issues that confront both Asia as a region and the international community as a whole. Consumers are becoming increasingly concerned over food quality and safety arising from the globalization of trade in food, intensive agriculture, environmental pollution and natural and manmade disasters. Such concerns have now been articulated via higher quality and safety standards required by markets, with producers under greater pressure to meet such standards in their efforts to build consumers’ confidence.
