Food safety has become a major concern for consumers in the developed world and Europe in particular. This has been highlighted by the recent spate of food scares ranging from the BSE (mad cow) crisis to Chinese melamine contamination of baby formula. To ensure food safety throughout Europe, stringent food safety standards have been put in place ‘from farm to fork’. At the same time, poor African countries in the COMESA rely on their food exports to the European market to achieve their development goals yet have difficulty meeting the EU food safety standards. This book examines the impact of EU food safety standards on food imports from COMESA countries. It also critically examines both EU and COMESA food safety standards in light of the WTO SPS Agreement and the jurisprudence of the WTO panels and Appellate Body. The book makes ground-breaking proposals on how the standards divide between the EU and the COMESA can be bridged and discusses the impact of EU food safety standards on food imports from poor African countries.

The rapidly changing nature of animal production systems, especially increasing intensification and globalization, is playing out in complex ways around the world. Over the last century, livestock keeping evolved from a means of harnessing marginal resources to produce items for local consumption to a key component of global food chains. Livestock in a Changing Landscape offers a comprehensive examination of these important and far-reaching trends. The books are an outgrowth of a collaborative effort involving international nongovernmental organizations including the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (UN FAO), the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), the Swiss College of Agriculture (SHL), the French Agricultural Research Centre for International Development (CIRAD), and the Scientific Committee for Problems of the Environment (SCOPE). Volume 1 examines the forces shaping change in livestock production and management; the resulting impacts on landscapes, land use, and social systems; and potential policy and management responses. Volume 2 explores needs and draws experience from region-specific contexts and detailed case studies. The case studies describe how drivers and consequences of change play out in specific geographical areas, and how public and private responses are shaped and implemented. Together, the volumes present new, sustainable approaches to the challenges created by fundamental shifts in livestock management and production, and represent an essential resource for policy makers, industry managers, and academics involved with this issue.

It studies technical and management issues, and explains how that impacts businesses, the government regulatory system, and the end user. Factoring in the risks that can be caused by both natural and human influences, including the abuse of food additives, this book reviews the efforts put forth by China to prevent food safety issues. It examines the changing track of food safety (including imported and exported products) in key aspects such as production, circulation, and consumption from 2006 to 2011 based on empirical investigation and comprehensive use of various statistical data, and examines most specifically China's food safety situation in 2011. This book addresses: Food production and processing Food transportation Food consumption Environment and consumer awareness of food safety Efforts and technical means of the government in food regulation Social responsibility of food producers and traders, and moral traits and professional qualities of employees Rationality, effectiveness, and operability of the technical specifications in production, processing, circulation, and consumption Food Safety in China: A Comprehensive Review provides an assessment of the actual state and future trends of the food safety risk in China.
