Food safety is a shared responsibility among all the stakeholders in the value chain from farm to fork: farmers, suppliers, distributors, manufacturers, retailers, consumers; with government expected to supply the framework in which safety can ultimately be assured. Risk to consumers can arise from weakness or criminal intent at any point in the chain, and a holistic, science-informed view is needed to consider and manage those risks.
Welcome to my food safety consultancy website. Please have a look at the services I offer. The words risk-based are thrown around a lot these days and they are in danger of becoming a throw-away comment. But to me they mean a lot.
