This paper examines problems being faced by agribusiness firms in developing countries in meeting the food-safety standards imposed by importing countries in their respective markets. Based on existing institutional frameworks in developing countries such as India, it is suggested that in order to meet the prescribed standards in international markets there is a need to establish inter-linkages across different institutions not only within developing countries but also with respected international standard-setting organizations for better and smoother implementation of WTO measures related to international food-safety market standards.
