About this book

Food safety is one of the most important issues confronting consumers, producers and distributors. It cannot be dealt with as just a physical probelm but must be considered as a multi-dimensional one, affected by politics, economics and social influences. This book focuses on the specific example of food safety in the beef industry in the USA, Canada, the UK and Australia. It outlines the experience of a number of countries with food safety problems (such as BSE) and examines: their drivers for change and institutional arrangements; whether there is a socially optimal approach to safety; and how much consumers can rely on the industry to police itself and governments to look after their interests. It also examines the implications for competitiveness and world trade.

Contents

Conceptual framework; international institutional arrangements; the United Kingdom; the United States; the United States; Canada; Australia; towards a socially optimal food safety system.

"This book focuses on food safety in the beef industry in the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia. It outlines the experience of several countries with food safety problems such as bovine spongiform encephalopathy and asks whether there is a socially optimal approach to food safety, and whether consumers can rely on the industry to police itself. It looks at drivers for change in the industry, and examines the implications for competitiveness and world trade. Readership includes those in food science, agricultural and food economics, public health, and animal and veterinary sciences."--SciTech Book News
