The challenge of universal food quality and safety regime
Term of Reference
Food supply chain has a long traditionally been an arena of various actors. We are witnessing industrialization of the food production process which involves parties from producers to consumers, from simple to highly advance technology, from small enterprises to Multinational Corporation as well as the diversity of the resource materials. Interestingly, the interplay within and between them is directed to achieve one ultimate goal, quality and safety assurance of food products. Furthermore, the development of mass product by large corporation and multinational company makes quality and safety aspects more pronounced.

Consumer’s priorities have altered the food supply chain leads to food demand chain. Nowadays consumer can determine the criteria of food quality, which include safety, nutritional, sensory, ethical requirements, etc. Consumer’s requirements must be fulfilled by the product’s performances that can be achieved by controlling each stage in the production process. The shorter product life cycle, and the efficiency and flexibility of food production have become more crucial. Innovation of products and services turn into a major importance to food production systems. However, there is a gap between actors of food supply chain. The well developed food industries aware of the need for product innovation. What about other especially in the less developed countries? Therefore, globalization of food preferences and a chance to consider universality of challenge for harmonizing the diversity of food supply chain.

This conference is intended to bring together perspectives and ideas on whether and how the highly diverse food supply chain can meet the challenge of universal food quality and safety requirements. There is a need for discussion in which various disciplinary approaches are accommodated and integrated to observe the diverse of food quality and safety along the diversity of food supply chains.
