Food Safety Issues in the Developing World


  • Unnveher, L.
  • Hirschhorn, N.


Food Safety Issues in the Developing World examines three main issues: what food security is, how it relates to animal and plant health, and how food safety hazards have affected people of the developing world. After raising and answering these important questions this volume makes a case for public investment in improving food safety. The authors demonstrate that food safety reduces the burden of disease and removes barriers to fresh food product exports, a potential source of income for the rural sector in the developing countries.
