Food safety as a priority for consumer organizations
Visoka poljoprivredna škola, Šabac
Abstract
Food safety is of principal importance for consumers. Contaminated food can cause irreparable effects on human health. Globalization of world economy has enhanced international food trade and, together with other factors, it has increased the risk for contemporary consumers. The consumers rights to safety are protected by numerous international organizations, such as International Consumer Organization, World Health Organization, International Organization for Food and Agriculture, and, first of all, the Organization of United Nations, which passed the Guidelines for consumer protection and recommended them to all member states back in 1985.Food safety is one of priorities in European Union and it is regulated by legal heritage of European Union, acquis communautaire. The issue of food safety is also a consumer priority in Serbia, and it is the reason why the state has to support consumer organizations in the field of product quality testing, and especially food product, apart from passing legal regulations.
