生きる上で不可欠な食は、生産から流通という様々な過程を経て、私たちの手元へ届き、消費されます。

食の生産や加工が私たちから離れていることから、「食べることができない」という状況は、海外はもとより、私たちの生活の中でも起きうる問題です。

持続的な生産・流通・消費を実現するためには、生産者や流通業者だけでなく、私たち消費者も責任を担う必要があるのです。

皆さんが普段生活している「当たり前」の中にも、課題はたくさんあります。
それに気づくか気づかないで、人生の楽しさは大きく変わります。
ぜひ、日々の気づき大切に大学生活を楽しんでください。

Introduction

  1. Study on risk communication at the outbreak of a domestic animal infectious disease: The outbreak of domestic animal infectious diseases that are specified by the OIE and the Act on Domestic Animal Infectious Diseases Control have the potential to affect not only farmers but also local economies. In such a situation, the possibility that people might fail to act quickly and properly cannot be ruled out. This study discusses methods of communicating risks in advance of outbreaks of domestic animal infectious diseases for smooth information sharing and better support systems. Refer to the photo “Workshop for training in the theory of epidemic control for zoonotic diseases.”
  2. Study on the sophistication of food production control: HACCP and GAP have been introduced in various countries as the basis for food sanitation control. This study outlines policy trends in Japan and elsewhere by analyzing factors involved in the introduction of HACCP and GAP, reviewing business analyses, and examining surveys of distributors and consumers, in order to clarify issues and support measures for the sophistication of food production control.
