Summary for Project title: R7530: Enhancing food chain integrity:
quality assurance mechanisms for air pollution impacts on fruit and
New knowledge about the policy linkages between food safety, poverty and
environmental pollution has had a major impact in guaranteeing consumer
health India. A key factor in the formula for success was the creation
of a food-safety forum involving representatives from government, the
private sector, and non-government and community organizations. They
worked together on policy advocacy and developed and tested food-safety
strategies. Environmental pollution can lead to contamination of fresh
produce, endangering the health and livelihoods of people living in and
around cities. The valuable institutional lessons, policy perspectives
and processes that emerged from the Indian experience can help to
promote pro-poor food-safety policy in other countries and contexts.
