Managing food safety and hygiene: governance and regulation as risk management

By Bridget M. Hutter


Food safety and hygiene is of critical importance to us all. In this wide ranging book, Bridget Hutter explores how we are all dependent on others to ensure that the food we consume from food in the retailing and hospitality sectors is safe. This has prompted a governance system embracing state regulation and groups beyond the state such as consumers, insurance, media and businesses themselves. The book argues that state regulation is ‘necessary but not sufficient’ as an influence on business risk management practices. Using research data from the UK, the author examines the relative importance of these other groups, in relation to each other and in relation to state regulation
