Safe foods improves 60% within the past ten (10) years. This is thanks to the combination efforts mainly of industry, government and in Europe EFSA (European Food Safety Authority). and the likes of nonpartisan non-lobbying advocacy groups such as the public trust GOB. Sea Food and HACCP...Regardless, the challenges still remains to tackle the risk factors within the food supply chain, and what may be consider favorable, health and environmental issues are linking and with it changes in the regulatory scene. The regulatory bodies for environment, health and food are evolving with more stringent standards safeguarding the integrity of soil and water resources from irreversible damage and deterioration by purposely and unconsciously inappropriate use of chemicals and organic flowing onto land and water - however we are informed that less and less chemical derivatives are used in agriculture.

    The development of HACCP food standards is to ensure safety biological, physical, and chemical risks and even interwoven with environmental standards to maintain a healthy "green" conscious - they are needed until the next wave of global solutions for food safety or advent of bio-energy.

Thus when considering the risk potential of contamination of the likes of water and soil resources it will be difficult to separate food safety and resources used to its processing / production. This is wherein HACCP MS can assist in validation of effectiveness based practices and methodology for the reduction of risk for global competitiveness, striking that balance of social responsibility and business profitability, et all within a plan and implementation - pursuing management systems such as HACCP HARPC MS, ISO 9001 applying food safety modern principles, HACCP MS, HACCP HARPC MS, HACCP-9000, Irish-HACCP... and alike provides for objective evidence of food safety. There is no one program best than other as these are dependent on purpose, competence, impartiality with integrity, and compulsory requirements as to commercially protect any given one region.

While not a substitution for applicable local laws and regulations, acquiring FSMS ISO 22000 certification may be helpful in maintaining adherence to these laws and regulations; visit list of certification bodies ; these are certifications bodies that are competent and impartial, while maintaining a self-regulated scheme.
