    Keynote address: "Improving efficiency and transparency in food safety systems - sharing experiences" 2002
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Food safety has been of great concern to mankind since early civilization. Fermentation, a primitive method of food safety, still practiced until now, has been known to both Egyptian and Chinese civilizations. Elaborate food storage systems such as grain "silos" were built. It is amazing in the absence of scientific knowledge, ancient Egyptians when building these "silos" attempted to control humidity and avoid human and animal contamination through using an opening in the lower part of the "sil os" to allow withdrawal of grains poured in it from above. In recent history, the discovery of microorganisms, the wide use of pesticides and fertilizers, the advances in food industry and the rapidly expanding world food trade necessitated the establishment of various food safety measures.

    New Zealand's approach to Food Safety Management 2002
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This paper outlines the application in New Zealand of a risk-based approach to food safety. It focuses on four key areas within the overall system in place in New Zealand: the roles within the government's regulatory model, the risk management framework, legislation, and measuring the regulatory system's performance. The New Zealand government has taken a partnership approach with food operators, assisting sectors to develop the tools they need to meet the mandatory outcome standards. Thes e include templates and codes of practice to assist operators to implement HACCP-based systems and risk management programmes. The approach has proven successful in contributing to the overarching goal of the food safety regulatory system: ensuring that the food that reaches consumers is safe and fit for purpose. The challenges for the future are in continuing to expand application of this approach across the entire food sector and measuring performance of the system.
