3rd European Food Safety & Standards Conference

Abstract
The intentional contamination of food supply poses a real threat to society. It has the potential to disrupt food distribution, loss of consumer confidence in government and the food supply. The global food system is very vulnerable, both structural and social. The bulk production and need for rapid production, sourcing and distribution at both national and international level is beyond the limits of routine food safety measures. Adapting to the additional threats arising from major environmental, climate and bioterrorism requires an integrated food system approach. In this respect a total food protection perspective will be summarized by breakdown of food safety management systems and vulnerability assessment. Food security, safety, defense, protection and quality will be linked within a food continuum by determining the countermeasures to minimize or eliminate vulnerabilities as well as enhancing the capability for surveliance, preparedness and response to intentional contamination for greater awareness and prevention.
