MetadataShow full item record
Climate change is a global phenomenon in the 21st century which may have impact on the occurrence of meatborne hazards at multiple points in the meat chain continuum, from the primary production through to consumption. The assurance of meat safety is a complex task, which requires strong inter-sectoral cooperation between relevant stakeholders such as Competent Authority, Academia, Food Industry and Consumers. The emerging food safety risks due to climate change may pose a serious challenge to the meat safety control system. Therefore, a better understanding of anticipated changes would be of the utmost importance for governments to ensure preparedness.
