Review Text

"This book is a must-read for policy-makers especially within the Ministries of Trade, Food and Agriculture, and related agencies. It is a good technical material for the Food and Drugs, and the Ghana Standards Authorities, Universities, Research Institutions and Students of food science, international relations, development economics, agribusiness, and associated disciplines."-- Ghana Business News, September 4, 2013 ".the book provides a thorough examination of food safety legislation around the world.This book is a must-read for policy makers, especially within the ministries of Trade, Food and Agriculture, and related agencies."-- Daily Graphic, August 23, 2013 "This book should be a useful reference for those attempting to harmonize food safety regulations. It should also serve as a stimulus for the growing network of food safety professionals who are involved in emerging efforts to create or restructure national and international food safety organizations, thereby facilitating the harmonization of global food safety procedures and regulations."-- Food Technology "Based on the principles of the Global Harmonization Initiative (GHI), Ensuring Global Food Safety offers a rational and multi-faceted approach to current food safety issues, while arguing that a science-based global regulatory framework will enhance the safety, availability and quality of the food supply worldwide. GHI was specifically established to help build global consensus on the scientific evidence underpinning food safety policy- making. This book provides practical examples in key areas such as microbiology, toxicology and nutrition, as well as discusses possible improvements necessary to sustain the integrity of the global food supply in the 21st century." --Global Harmonization Newsletter, January/February 2012
