Determinants of Future Microbial Food Safety in Canada for risk communication

Sylvain Charlebois and Amit Summan

Department of Marketing and Consumer Studies, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada.


This paper investigates the factors that are affecting food safety in Canada today, and those that will become increasingly important in the future. The tools used to complete this analysis are primarily the review of scientific and “gray” literature, and the analysis of multiple sources of data. We develop a methodology for ranking the factors and rank the factors according to their predicted effect on foodborne disease in Canada. The analysis reveals the top three factors that will be detrimental to food safety as pathogen evolution, increase in temperatures and increase in extreme weather events. Future studies may benefit from an analysis of factors by commodity.
