About North American Strawberry Growers Association

Food safety is a technical discipline describing preparation, handling, and storage of food in ways that inhibit foodborne illness. Research activities and policies will help to cope with the three main challenges these globe is facing today: securing effective food production in face of a growing world food demand; ensuring sustainable management of natural resources and climate action; to contribute to a balanced territorial development The pathways within this line of thought are safety between market and the industry and then between the consumer and the market. Food can transmit disease from person to person and as serve as a growth medium for bacteria that causes food poisoning. There are numerous Food Safety Societies worldwide both national and international. However, “North American Strawberry Growers Association” stands out to be one of the most renowned societies for strawberry cultivators worldwide. Food Safety and Food Safety Societies in different parts of the world are as follows:

  • American Food Safety Societies: USA is considered to be the hub of research. National Food Security Surveys are the main survey tool used by the USDA to measure food security in US. There are several societies working on different field, out of which almost 75 USA Food Safety Societies and associations are present.
  • European Food Safety Societies: More than 52 Food Safety Societies in Europe are contributing towards Food Safety research activities through their annual congress, journal and newsletters. The work of EFSA covers all matters with a direct or indirect impact on food and feed safety, including animal health and welfare, plant protection and plant health and nutrition. EFSA supports the European Commission, the European Parliament and EU member states in taking effective and timely risk management decisions that ensure the protection of the health of European consumers and the safety of the food and feed chain. EFSA also communicates to the public in an open and transparent way on all matters within its remit.
  • Asia-Pacific Food Safety Societies: There are almost 32 Asian Food Safety Societies working on human, animal as well as plant Food Safety. In Asia, not a week goes by without another new food safety scandal making headlines, from contamination and food poisoning, to mislabelling and product recalls. Nine Fleishman Hillard offices in APAC have been monitoring trends in the industry since the start of 2016 in order to better understand why these food safety issues seem to be increasing in frequency, as well as the impact heightened media scrutiny is having on food and beverage brands in the region.
  • Middle East Food Safety Societies: In Saudi Arabia there is little farming without irrigation, which depends almost entirely on fossil aquifers. The desalted seawater used by Saudi Arabia to meet the ever-increasing water demand in cities is too costly for irrigation use. Saudi Arabia’s growing food insecurity has led it to buy or lease arable land in different countries, including world’s hungriest nations Ethiopia and Sudan. The Middle East nations are encountering price spikes on world food markets. This is due to competition for the same food products (wheat, corn, soybeans, animal protein, etc.) from other areas of the world, especially Asia, where incomes are rising and demand for more and better calories is exploding. In Middle East almost 24 Food Safety Associations are present. These societies are organizing annual and biannual Food Safety Annual Conferences in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
  • Food Safety Societies Conferences: There are almost 100 Food Safety Meetings and conferences which are scheduled by the Food Safety societies for the year 2016 and 2017 in different parts of the globe. These international Food Safety Conferences and Food Safety Annual Meetings are intended to bring together all the recent researches, new innovations and findings in a global platform.
