The paper attempts to make a brief analysis of risks (inventory of resources, identification of hazardous events, prioritizing the hazards control, identification of control measures, defining the operational and critical limits, establishment of the monitoring system), of corrective and validation actions, of hazard identification in the microbial risk assessment, of responsibilities. The methodology used is based on the risk and opportunity analysis and synthesis, the analysis in the context of sustainable development, the analysis and the synthesis of information on the corrective measures, validation and responsibilities. The information was supplemented by information contained in articles and studies published in professional journals, in the National Rural Development Programme (NRDP) 2007-2013, in Romania’s development strategies concerning the rural area, biodiversity, sustainable development. The obtained findings allow us to conclude that in a time of global changes such as climate change, population growth, intensified exploitation of resources and ecosphere services, food security and nutrition security are a global challenge, in the context in which the food demand may exceed production capacity. Food security is conditioned by the amount of available food, by its quality and by the access to food.
