Global Food Legislation

An Overview


Food is produced not only to be consumed in the country of its origin, but also to be exported to various locations worldwide. As such, manufacturers and suppliers need to know the market conditions and regulations of their customers in export markets.

La première collection d'histoire 100% numérique !  La collection « Se cultiver dans les transports » vous offre la possibilité de vous cultiver rapidement et de manière ludique : vous trouverez 10 fiches (station 1 à station 10) et un test QCM de culture générale…

Filling a distinct need in the globalized food economy, this introductory reference distils the key facts and regulations from the food laws of 10 countries and the European Union across four continents. The result is a truly global survey of the world's most important food markets in terms of regulatory standards, principles and the authorities involved.

To enable comparison between each country portrait, each chapter is structured in the same way, and includes information on the legal framework, the competent authorities, explanations of the basic principles of food law, introductions to the main areas of regulation (particularly, labeling and advertising; food hygiene and safety; additives and flavorings; food supplements; genetically modified organisms; import and export regulations), accountability regulations, and information on Internet resources.

The publication therefore provides key facts for food producers active on the international market, who often lack the time and resources to refer to the primary laws and legal commentaries.

Markets discussed:

  • Argentina
  • Brazil
  • Canada
  • China
  • European Union
  • Japan
  • USA
  • Republic of Korea
  • Russian Federation
  • Switzerland
  • Turkey
