Over the past decade, food quality assurance practices have changed dramatically, including the wide acceptance worldwide of the HACCP and the ISO 9000 series of standards. In keeping up with those changes, this new edition of what is considered the top textbook and reference in the field is extensively revised to cover new versions of standards. Among new areas covered are food safety risk analysis, especially with regard to food bioterrorism, traceability, foods derived from genetically modified organisms, organic foods, and natural health products. Expanded information is provided on farm-to-table food safety and international trade.
