Food Safety in the Middle East provides the latest research data on food safety of each individual country in the middle east and gulf area and summarizes the latest developments on food safety practices, policies and legislation. Food safety is a hot issue in research over the last decade due to the surge in foodborne infections particularly in these areas. Data suggests the increase is due the foods consumed by the increasing holidaymakers, tourists and locals. This book surmises the information published in scientific literature with additional reports, knowledge and expertise to help reduce foodborne illness in these growing areas. This an excellent reference to bridge existing data, complement already existing data, discuss the state-of-the-art findings comparing and contrasting new data for the purposes of implementing preventative measures. The books also discusses current food safety regulations at the state and government level as well as the latest recommendations applying in these areas. Provides current research on pathogens in traditional foods consumed in specific regions of Mid-East and UAE Includes information on policies and strategies measures to combat food safety intoxications Presents perspectives on current and future legislations to limit foodborne intoxications to improve food safety in middle east countries and the gulf states Discusses foodborne intoxications to gain and understanding of causes to promote best practices
Taking into account toxicity levels at normal consumption levels, intake per kg bodyweight and other acknowledged considerations, each chapter in this book will be based on one or more proven examples. It is intended to provide specific examples and potential improvements to the safety of the world's food supply, while also increasing the amount of food available to those in undernourished countries. This book is designed to to provide science-based tools for improving legislation and regulation. Benefits: Reduce amount of food destroyed due to difference in regulations between nations Positively impact the time-to-market of new food products by recognizing benefit of "one rule that applies to all" Use the comparison of regulations and resulting consequences to make appropriate, fully-informed decisions Employ proven science to obtain global consensus for regulations Understand how to harmonize test protocols and analytical methods for accurate measurement and evaluation Take advantage of using a risk/benefit based approach rather than risk/avoidance to maximize regulatory decisions

This book covers important aspects of the field of food security and safety, ranging from fundamental production, through advanced water treatment technologies and detection of novel pollutants, to management and policy making. The discussion strives to develop an integrated approach to solving the associated problems by simultaneously considering sociological, ecological and economic aspects. Special focus is on the environmental management systems that should be integrated in the processes of environmental risk assessment. Also addressed are other technologies applied in the service of detecting, preventing and monitoring possible threats to food security and safety. With its variety of subjects, this volume can serve both as a textbook for advanced studies and as a useful reference source for professionals.

Infant food companies present their food safety programs as an important part of their responsibility to society. How these companies justify their food safety programs is best understood using models developed to describe the concept of corporate social responsibility. Boltanski and Thevenot's worlds of justification provide the best conceptual framework for understanding the food safety appeals made by infant food companies. Examining public documents from infant food companies provided evidence on how infant food companies portray food safety messages. Interviewing actors within the US food safety system provided insights into the food safety issues that affect infant food companies. This study concludes with recommendations designed to improve infant food safety messages.
The environmental, health and sanitary requirements in developed countries are often seen as non-tariff barriers to trade, and this study considers the possibility that these standards could be also be protectionist. The authors use case studies and evidence from locally based researchers.
