The food safety market - Italy

Available languages


1.1 Definition and scope of study

Food safety, or food security, is the assurance that the food consumed is safe and of good quality and is not likely to cause harm to consumers. Food safety is a public health issue and as such is widely controlled by the public authorities responsible for it; usually the state controls the quality of food starting from the source, through strict controls to the imports and to the company producers; sometimes, like in Italy, there is also a branch of police that controls randomly restaurants and markets to be sure that the food security is respected. On a global scale, the FAO, in collaboration with the WHO, is the entity most dedicated to food safety. The Codex Alimentarius was established in 1963 by the two organizations as a program to develop standards and guidelines aimed at preserving consumer health. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), which was founded in 2002 and is situated in Parma, Italy, oversees this issue for the European countries. EFSA provides professional advice to the European Commission, European Parliament, and EU Member States for them to make efficient and timely risk management choices that preserve European consumers' health as well as the safety of food and the food chain.  

It is very difficult to estimate the global market for food safety because each state has its own strategies and budget regarding both private and public structures; nevertheless, the market is still highly concentrated around a small number of countries. Indeed, in 2021 the United States FDA accounts for more than a quarter of the world safety food expense.

In Italy, numerous techniques and procedures have been created over time to prevent contamination and control the correctness of the operations carried out by the sector's operators to ensure the safety of food, from the raw product to the packaged one that reaches the consumer's table. Food production methods, control protocols and procedures: Lisa, Haccp, et al., and microbiological risk: zoonoses are the main points of food risk. The NAS, the Carabinieri Corps' Command for Health Protection, is one of Italy's operational bodies for food safety. The NAS's key responsibilities include conducting company inspections, checking the process for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points, sampling activities for product analysis, and even issuing permits.
