International Coordination of Food Safety Regulations

As food distribution chains are increasingly stretched around the world, urgency has arisen for the creation of new food safety standards and stricter enforcement of existing food safety laws to ensure that food industry quality control and food processing standards provide a safe global food supply.

The global food and beverage industry is the world's largest industry; in fact, larger than the entire world's other industries combined. In the quest for market share and increased profits, quality and food safety may sometimes be sacrificed. Consumers depend upon the interaction and the cooperation between government agencies to set and enforce standardized safety guidelines that ensure no compromise of quality and safety. Consumers need to know that agriculture produce is safe from the farm all the way through to the grocer's shelf, fish is safe harvested wild or raised by aquaculture, poultry and livestock are free from pathogens, and that food and food supplements contain ingredients generally recognized as safe. Processed foods must be pasteurized or sterilized, and canned or otherwise packaged in aseptically sealed containers. Fresh food must be inspected by government agencies.

Coordinating these International Governmental efforts is no easy task. In the United States alone, Food Safety Regulations are divided among multiple Government Agencies such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB). These U.S. agencies must then communicate with the equivalent Government Agencies of other countries:
