Managing Food Safety and Hygiene: Governance and Regulation as Risk Management

Front Cover
Edward Elgar, 2011 - Business & Economics - 211 pages
Food safety and hygiene is of critical importance to us all, yet, as periodic food crises in various countries each year show we are all dependent on others in business and public regulation to ensure that the food we consume in the retailing and hospitality sectors is safe. Bridget Hutter considers the understandings of risk and regulation held by those in business and considers the compliance pressures on managers and owners, and how these relate to understandings of risk and uncertainty.
