The Cyprus Centre for Business Research is pleased to announce that a new scientific journal article was published as a result of a research collaboration between two of our Research Fellows, Dr Derek Watson and Dr Fanos Tekelas. The article is titled “BREXIT and the Implications of Food Safety Cultural Compliance in the Food Manufacturing Sector” and was published in March 2018 in the Acta Scientific Microbiology Journal
The articles is concerned with the number of accidents or incidents particularly in the food manufacturing sector - a serious cause for concern. The problem is further compounded with the onset of Brexit. In consequence, food manufacturers are seeking efficiency savings, whilst aiming not to compromise food safety compliance. Whilst there are areas of best practice, sadly there is an increasing number of examples in which failure to comply with food safety is resulting in several consequences. This paper addresses Food Safety Cultural Compliance within UK Food Manufacturers and identifies core issues that hinder the establishment of a proactive food safety culture. The data collected clearly indicates a commitment to food safety compliance.
The journal is available online;
it is also available on Google Scholar.
