Fresh food products have a high income elasticity of demand and few traditional trade barriers in high income markets.As such, they represent an important opportunity for less developed country (LDC) exporters. Fresh food product exportsaccount for half of all food and agricultural exports from LDCs to high income countries. But these products may be subjectto greater food safety risks and potential trade barriers arising from sanitary regulation. This paper reviews the challengesand issues facing LDCs in meeting food safety standards for export. These issues include: (a) the importance of fresh foodproduct trade by region and the kinds of issues that arise from those products; (b) the role of fmm to table approaches andhazard analysis critical control points (HACCP) in ensuring safety; (c) the role of the public sector in LDCs in facilitatingtrade; (d) the potential role of the SPS Agreement in resolving disputes and determining equivalency of standm·ds betweenhigh and low income countries. © 2000 Elsevier Science B.V.
