    Salmonellosis and campylobacteriosis are among the most frequently reported foodborne diseases worldwide. While numerous potential vehicles of transmission exist, commercial chicken meat has been identified as one of the most important food vehicles for these organisms. As a result, the Codex Alimentarius Commission agreed that guidelines for the control of Salmonella and Campylobacter in poultry was a priority and initiated their development in 2007. I n order t o continue t h e i r work and en sure t h a t i t was underpinned with the most robust scientific data, the Codex Committee in Food Hygiene requested FAO and WHO to provide them with the necessary scientific advice. In response to that request, FAO and WHO convened a Technical Meeting from 4 to 8 May 2009 in Rome, Italy, the discussions and the outcome of which are documented in this report. This volume and others in this Microbiological Risk Assessment Series contain information that is useful to both risk assessors and risk m anagers, including international scientific committees, the Codex Alimentarius Commission, governments and food regulatory agencies, scientists, food producers and industries and other people or institutions with an interest in the area of microbiological hazards in foods, their impact on human health and food trade and their control.

    Poultry Supply Chains and Market Failures in Northern Viet Nam

    Our farm surveys as well as other research in Viet Nam indicate that poultry production is important for the incomes of the rural poor and it is important to recognize that the poor are involved in all stages of the poultry market chain, not just in production. Poultry market channels in northern Viet Nam might be generalized into two or three major avenues: in one small scale farmers produce local chicken and sell to nearby markets or to urban areas through informal channels. In another, medium and large farms sell through formal, regulated channels such as wholesale markets. In a few cases, large companies have built their own slaughterhouses, nearing complete vertical integration. These poultry markets are at a critical juncture. The newer, more formal marketing chains are considered to be easier to regulate, however, if smallholders and / or small-scale traders cannot market local chicken through these channels, they will continue using informal channels due to the high levels of d emand for the local type of chicken in Ha Noi.

    To collate and assess the most recent scientific information relevant to the control of thermotolerant Campylobacter species in broiler production and chicken meat, the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Meeting on Microbiological Risk Assessment (JEMRA) convened a meeting in Rome, Italy in February 2023.The expert committee reviewed the available data on Campylobacter control including scientific literature published from 2008 to October 2022 and data submitted in response to a call for data for this meeting. The experts: 1) determined the quality and quantity of evidence of control measures for Campylobacter, 2) evaluated the impact of measures to control Campylobacter in the broiler production chain, 3) determined which hazard-based interventions pertained specifically to Campylobacter and which were general to the control of foodborne pathogens in the pre- and post-harvest broiler production chain, and 4) reviewed and recommended revisions to the Guidelines for the Control of Campylobacter and Salmonella in Chicken Meat.This report describes the output of this expert meeting and the advice herein is useful for both risk assessors and risk managers, at national and international levels and those in the food industry working to control the hazard in poultry.
