The global food and agricultural industries are expanding and changing rapidly. Eating habits in fast-growing countries continue to evolve as consumers become wealthier, and people everywhere become more aware of food quality and safety issues. In response, governments have put in place strict regulations and businesses along the food supply chain have developed various standards and control plans to prevent food safety issues.
Companies involved in the production, packaging, handling transportation and sale of food and food products, or in the agricultural commodities industry, must comply with these regulations to access valuable consumer markets. They may also choose to enforce strict control plans to safeguard reputation, or increase their attractiveness to consumers.
