Abstract

There are considerable development to establish quality standards and schemes to have safe foods and sustainable agriculture alternatives to protect natural resources and environment. From one hand, there are strict quality and safety measures used in conventional agriculture and some considerable development to have same controlled and certified sustainable systems such as organic farming on the other hand. In fact, alternatives agriculture systems have not guaranteed food safety, even if they intent do. Recently, there are movements in both consolidation of the wide range measures used in conventional agriculture and used them in the alternative productions systems. In short a worldwide strong tendency have shown to have a sound and consolidated strict quality and safety measures, as well as having a unified food system from seed to fork. This paper aims to review these developments shortly. Indeed these are big challenges. All stakeholders have to realize these rapid changes and need to be in common efforts to meet new food policy requirements.
