The issue of supplying safe food on a global scale is a complicated task. With the advances in expectations from consumers to have a variety of food products from around the world available in their immediate area, the focus on how to meet this demand and do so safely challenges not only the delivery systems used for food transport, but the knowledge base of food safety experts and governmental agencies around the globe. The purpose of this article is to investigate research on the global initiatives to provide safe food through the chain of delivery, beginning with growers, distributors, transporters, retailers and non-profit organizations. Additionally, presenting the food safety inspection process and issues with the systems used in a variety of countries, are included.
