Escalating population growth and intensive urbanization have resulted in the emergence of several food safety issues. Supply of safe food to the vulnerable populations especially in the poorer economies seems to be a demanding task. Botulism, Shigellosis, Campylobacteriosis, Escherichia coli infection, Staphylococcus aureus infection, Salmonellosis, Listeriosis and Cholerae are extensively prevalent and pose a major threat to human health in underdeveloped communities. According to an estimate, 600 million people worldwide get sick due to the consumption of contaminated food with 420 000 deaths annually thus leading to loss of around 33 million healthy life years (DALYs). Similarly, data are not scant to suggest high death rate associated with foodborne illness among children under 5 years with an estimated 125 000 deaths every year. Global prevalence of food borne pathogenesis has drastically affected socioeconomic growth and international trade among a myriad of nations. The existing food safety status of many African, South Asian, Central, and South American developing countries is distressing, therefore; it seems imperative to direct concerted efforts to ensure the supply of safe food to the population in these regions. ICSFA-17 has been planned as an endeavour to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Food Safety. Additionally ICFSA-17 will also provide a platform for researchers, academicians, food safety experts, program managers, professionals from food and allied industry, policy makers, representatives of consumers’ group, restaurant managers, practitioners and representatives of international organizations to present and discuss the most recent innovations and trends, to overpower challenges currently faced by the global community with respect to unavailability of safe, sufficient and nutritious food. The conclusion and the recommendations drawn from thought provoking talks, concrete suggestions and experience sharing by the learned participants, will be documented and disseminated to the policy makers, legislators, academia, industry and relevant international organizations for execution and implementation.
