Food safety has been recognised globally as a major problem, threatening consumer health and creating trade barriers across the global food web. The accurate identification and appropriate evaluation of emerging food safety risks are fundamental to effective food safety management though the complexity of these emerging risks will in all likelihood depend on a number of different factors and as such can be extremely difficult to predict. The overall aim of this thesis was to identify gaps in knowledge and skills from a legislative, scientific, industrial, and consumer perspective relative to the global drivers for food safety. This process included a range of qualitative and quantitative research methods, including literature reviews, interview, open ended surveys, on-line questionnaires, and [?] techniques. A thorough literature review was conducted at the beginning from which three key subject areas were chosen for the primary focus of investigation in the thesis these included pesticide legislation, nanotechnologies and food fraud.
