\r\n Food-borne infectious disease is a quite common health problem that currently affects millions around the world. The burden of diseases caused by these food-borne pathogens remains mostly unknown. Concern over pathogenic and spoilage microorganisms in foods is increasing because of the increase in outbreaks of food-borne diseases (FBDs). The majority of food-borne diseases have either a bacterial or viral etiology. Preventive aspects are geared toward holding food (including liquid and alternative enteral feeds) at proper temperature, storing food in a hygienic manner and preventing cross contamination. Foodborne diseases are often caused by biological, chemical or physical hazards.

\r\n There is growing evidence that a major share of global food is thrown away, with concomitant detrimental repercussions for sustainability. Reducing food waste is a key sustainability challenge for the food industry. Food wastes are often an environmental and economic downside if not managed properly but it will meet various demands of a country if it is considered as a resource. Global levels of food waste are attracting growing concern and need immediate action to mitigate their negative ecological and socio-economic ramifications. In the developed countries, 20-40% of food waste is generated at the manufacturing stage of supply chains and is usually managed in non-optimised ways resulting in extra environmental impacts.

\r\n From earliest times food has been significantly vulnerable to exploitation, and there's an extended history of food legislation with the aim of preventing consumers being either cheated or poisoned. Measures for the protection of the consumer against the adulteration of food and drink were among the earliest examples of social legislation. Despite the unquestioned improvement in food purity and in marketing practices caused by this legislation consumers are more and more uneasy about the security and quality of the modern food supply. Important elements of Food Safety include general principles of food law, food hygiene and Genetically Modified Organisms labeling. Proposes to update and extend legislative controls to ensure the safety of animal feed were also included in food safety regulations.

\r\n HACCP is a key component of modern food safety management practice such that design, implementation, control and management of HACCP systems are crucial to the production of safe food products. While it is widely accepted that food firms ought to apply HACCP, understanding of the factors impacting successful HACCP application is limited and this information is very important to the delivery of systems that will regulate all related food safety hazards. Proper implementation of food hygiene principles across the food chain in conjunction with HACCP System will ensure food safety. Food safety hazards occur once food is exposed to risky agents that result in contamination of that food.

\r\n Food safety in retail foodservice to a greater extent is substantial to consumers. Cross-contamination of foodborne pathogens within the retail environment may be a vital public health issue causative to an exaggerated risk for a foodborne health problem. Ready-to-eat (RTE) processed foods similar to store meats, cheese, and in some cases recent manufacture, are concerned in foodborne illness outbreaks because of contamination with pathogens like listeria. With relevance to Listeria monocytogenes, deli slicers are usually the main source of cross-contamination. GFSI was established to make sure confidence within the delivery of safer food to customers, whereas continued to enhance food safety throughout the supply chain.

The surveillance systems have a twin purpose. Initial is to notice, control and stop foodborne disease outbreaks. Most of the countries have such surveillance and response systems in place; however, the effectiveness and coverage of these systems vary from country to country. Many of us define such foodborne disease outbreak investigations, together with their detection and control through food safety mechanisms and discuss the food safety response as well as the importance of developing emergency response plans for food safety. The second is to tell long-term problems, like distinguishing priorities and developing a policy for the control and prevention of foodborne illness; estimating the burden of foodborne diseases and monitoring trends, and evaluating foodborne disease prevention and control methods. However, only a number of countries have surveillance systems in place that may meet these objectives, severely impacting the potency of their food control systems.

\r\n As a consequence of a series of food incidents and scandals that have taken place within the extended and more recent past, there's a growing concern that food chains must become additionally sustainable to regain and retain consumer trust. Sustainability as a construct is frequently evolving especially wherever the scope of mandatory and voluntary requirements changes and realigns. Food authenticity symbolizes a great challenge for quality control assessment. A great attention is paid by customers, food industries, and authorities. Many studies target this subject not only to forestall food frauds but also to protect customers from risks from undeclared ingredients or incorrect labeling.
