Abstract

Setting up and enforcing an efficient food safety system consistent to international law provisions is particularly burdensome for developing countries. Indeed, besides the development of food laws and regulations, it is necessary to organize a food control management, a qualified food inspection service, a number of equipped laboratory services to monitor the quality of the food and collect the relevant epidemiological data and an effective information network aimed to raise the awareness of all the stakeholders involved in the food chain, including the officials, key workers and consumers. These tasks, which raises a number of problems even in developed countries, are particularly burdensome for developing countries due to a lack of institutional and human capacities both in the public and in the private sector. The paper investigates the main concerns and challenges in setting up an adequate food safety system in Vietnam.
