Food Regulation and Trade: Toward a Safe and Open Global System

Food Regulation and Trade: Toward a Safe and Open Global System Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Guarding the safety of a nation's food supply, ensuring quality, and providing information to consumers so that they can make informed food purchase choices are widely accepted as universal obligations of governments. But differences in the way that governments fulfill these obligations can lead to trade conflicts. The potential for such conflicts increases as more affluent and safety-conscious consumers demand additional regulations in the national food systems. Governments should handle these conflicts in a way that both upholds food safety standards--and public confidence in them--and preserves the framework for trade and the benefits of an open food system. This book examines the current state of regulation of the increasingly global food system, analyzes the underlying causes of the trade conflicts (both those that are currently evident and those that are waiting in the wings), and outlines the steps that could be taken to ensure that food safety and open trade become, at the least, compatible and, at best, mutually supporting.

Book News Annotation:

Josling (emeritus Food Research Institute, Stanford Institute for International Studies), Donna Roberts, an economist with the US Department of Agriculture, and David Orden (International Food Policy Research Institute, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State U.) contend that international institutions have a broad role to play in improving the performance of regulatory authorities in providing safe food and preventing the spread of animal and plant disease, and that governments should be relegated to preventing misleading claims.
