(Ekobai Holdings Ltd.: Hong Kong) -- Ekobai.com, an online directory for certified suppliers and products has teamed up with the international organization GLOBALGAP (good agricultural practice) to produce a guide that analyzes how safety standards are changing global markets for food and agricultural products. Complete with the latest facts, figures and industry news, the guide provides suppliers and buyers in the food industry with an introductory account of how recent failures in food safety have led to a tightening of standards and buyer’s requirements.

Ekobai.com’s Food Safety Standards emphasizes the importance of certification in today’s market and provides information on and links to all major internationally recognized standards.

Most countries throughout the world have a government-connected authority to monitor food safety issues from production to sale. Such authorities advise on national legislation and deliver food safety requirements for home-produced and imported goods. Examples include the Food Standards Authority in the United Kindom, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the State Food and Drug Administration of China. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) conducts risk assessments on food and feed safety in close collaboration with national authorities and provides independent scientific advice and clear communication on existing and emerging risks.

The HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) guidelines published by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization are an integral part of the key food safety standard being developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ISO 22000.
