Agricultural Biotechnology and Food Safety
Food security can be defined as “access of all people to sufficient and safe food at any time to have active and healthy life”. Indeed, focusing on sufficiency and the health of agricultural products as two major aspects of food security leading to the prevention of diseases incidence are important while changing the current therapeutic approach in the country. The food supply chain includes three successive sub-chains namely production of agricultural inputs commodities, production of agricultural goods and production of food. Biotechnology is mainly applicable in the first sub-chain for supplying healthy agricultural inputs commodities which affects the quality and health of the final products and environment preservation. The state government could help the improvement of the health level by supporting the internal capabilities through encouraging the use of modern biotechnology for production of safe and qualified agricultural products. Of course, establishing safe food chain encounters obstacles that are the subject of this study. Having reviewed the existing problems, suggestions are made to resolve them by implementing agricultural biotechnology warranted by the current laws and regulations.
