Food Safety and Quality in Developing Countries, Volume II: Case Studies of Effective Implementation examines the scientific, trade, organizational, national infrastructural, and systems implementation aspects of successfully exporting processed traditional foods from developing countries to developed country markets. It uses the story of Jamaica's enigmatic national fruit, the ackee, as the main example to explore concerns of risk analysis and management and toxicology, also discussing analytical approaches in processing that ensure food safety and the regulatory aspects/issues of safety. The book also covers the application of science, the transformation of production systems, regulatory underpinnings, and trade and marketing considerations of a traditional product as an example of overcoming market access challenges within established trading systems. It represents the only book that provides a comprehensive, case study-based insight into trade and market access options for traditional export products from developing country markets. Provides comprehensive information on Blighia sapida, covering its agronomy, geographic antecedents, food science, production, biochemistry, toxicity, analytical determination, pathology of the attendant illness, application of risk assessment, risk analysis, and mitigation strategies for the implementation of food safety Offers different strategies to handle specific SPS and TBTs which affect food exports Presents how to address market access issues and how to effectively implement risk and hazard mitigation strategies
