The goals of this study include: reviewing and evaluating Korea's food safety management; examining food safety management in foreign countries and drawing policy implications for Korea; forecasting future changes in Korea's food safety environment and charting directions for policy response; taking stock of regulations on food businesses and identifying areas for improvement, and; setting mid-to-long-term strategies for food safety in Korea. To provide a basis for setting national agenda in response to the changing food safety environment, the authors extracted a set of key points: changing types of food safety
accidents; increasing incidents of hazardous materials in imported foods and foodstuffs, climate and other environmental changes; emergence of new food ingredients and new technologies in food production; extended application of the FTA; strengthening food accreditation and information provision for consumer empowerment; aging population and changes in dietary patterns; food safety policies eyed to raising consumer satisfaction, and; food safety management in times of potential nuclear pollution.
The results of this study suggest that Korea's mid-to-long term food safety strategies should be able to predict and duly respond to future changes in food safety environment. This will require prudent considerations of reconciling the issues of food safety and demands and policies concerning other areas. The findings point to the need for strengthening the role of local governments in food safety and, thus, in the proceeding of the strategies. Also, the current capabilities of responsible Ministries should be closely examined and factored into the making of the strategies, with a view to making them implementable and sustainable.
