The field of food quality assurance has evolved substantially over the past decade, and certain key developments have become widely accepted. These include Quality Systems (e.g., ISO 9000) and HACCP. Consequently, it has become essential for students preparing for careers in the food industry to have some basic training in these systems as part of the curricula in their university or college programs. Food Quality Assurance: Principles and Practices integrates the latest principles, practices, and terminology of food safety systems with those of quality management systems to provide an understanding of a single food quality management system.
