Extract

The regulation of food safety has drastically changed over the past two decades. Today, public and private actors share the responsibility of ensuring safe food. Private standards play a significant role in managing and controlling food safety risks in supply chains as major food retailers and producers increasingly require suppliers to meet these private standards or obtain certification for them. This chapter outlines the architecture of the private regulation of food safety and demonstrates that multiple national and international private actors are involved in the development and implementation of private food safety standards.
