Both the general public and the food industry have become increasingly aware of and concerned about addressing food safety. Several factors have contributed to the heightened focus on food safety such as: an increasing number of widespread food pathogens; an increase in public health concerns about chemical contamination of food; the size and diversity of the food industry; the diversity of food products and increased media attention. Also, there has been a growing trend in international trade requiring worldwide equivalence. These global trends make implementing a solid food safety program vital to business success.
