Global Harmonisation In Focus
Around the globe there are more than 7 billion people. All of whom require adequate food that is safe and nutritious to eat. Most of the world’s governments have addressed their responsibility to protect their citizens from foodborne contamination and disease by implementing food safety regulations.
According to the guest editors, many of these regulations are not based on scientific evidence, but rather, on misperceptions and suppositions about what constitutes safe-to-consume foodstuffs. “If food safety regulations are based on feelings, hype and uninformed estimations rather than scientific evidence, ensuring food security for 7 billion people will be impossible.” View this In Focus section which includes a selection of papers presented at the 2012 International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST) Congress.
JSFA welcomes two new Editors in Chief

JSFA welcomes two new Editors in Chief in 2014: Dr Mark Shepherd and Prof. Andrew Waterhouse
Senior Scientist at the Climate, Land and Environment Group of New Zealand’s Crown Research Institute AgResearch, Dr Mark Shepherd specialises in nutrient management in agricultural systems with an emphasis on sustainable production.
One of the most highly cited researchers in agriculture by ISI Andrew L Waterhouse specialises in the chemical analysis of wine. As Professor of Enology he has held the John E. Kinsella Chair in Food, Nutrition and Health, and the Marvin Sands Endowed Chair, is a winner of the Medical Friends of Wine Research Award, a UC Davis Chancellor’s Fellow award and holds an honorary doctorate from the University of Bordeaux.
Emphasis will be given to addressing key topics such as potential food security breaches as well as research to underpin sustainable food production - crucial if society is to cope with increasing global population and demand for food.
