Abstract

A series of food safety crises, the discovery of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in the domestic cattle herd, and a series of labeling scandals in Japan have shaken the trust of Japanese consumers in the safety of their food supply. The Japanese government has responded by implementing a series of new regulations and creating the new Food Safety Commission. The food industry has responded with assurance programs to reduce consumer anxiety over food safety and wholesomeness.
