A Down to Earth Analysis

The internet is rife with biased and unsubstantiated claims from
the organic industry, and the treatment of issues such as food
safety and quality by the media ("if it bleeds, it leads") tends to
have a negative impact on consumer perceptions about conventional
food. Until recently, more and more consumers in many countries
were opting to buy organic food over conventional food, resulting
in a radical shift in food retailing. This was due to concerns over
chemical residues, food poisoning resulting in recalls, food scares
such as "mad-cow" disease, issues like gene-modified (GM foods),
antibiotics, hormones, cloning and concerns over the way plants and
animals are being grown commercially as food sources. As a result
there has been an expansion of the organic industry and the supply
of organic foods at farmers' markets, supermarkets and specialty
stores.

Organic Production and Food Quality: A Down to Earth
Analysis 
is the first comprehensive book on how organic
production methods influence the safety and quality of foods, based
on an unbiased assessment of the latest scientific findings. 
The title is a 'must-have' for everyone working within the food
industry.

    effects on the safety and quality of foods

  • Authoritative, unbiased and up-to-date examination of relevant
