Food Safety Issues in the Developing World
Nanc Hirschhorn Laurian Unnevehr
Price: $ 22

World Bank Technical Paper no. 469. "Managing food safety risks is becoming a prerequisite for participation in international trade, and taking advantage of trade opportunities is an important element in the World Bank's strategy to reduce poverty." -- Mr. Robert L. Thompson, Director, Rural Development, World Bank Food safety requires investment in a comprehensive system covering the provision of information, training and infrastructure development. Without this investment, the developing countries will not reap the necessary benefits. Food Safety Issues in the Developing World examines three main issues: what food security is, how it relates to animal and plant health, and how food safety hazards have affected people of the developing world. After raising and answering these important questions this volume makes a case for public investment in improving food safety. The authors demonstrate that food safety reduces the burden of disease and removes barriers to fresh food product exports, a potential source of income for the rural sector in the developing countries. This publication will be of interest to development practitioners, government officials, and trade professionals.
