Transparency in Food: A Challenge for Research and Sector Initiatives

Gerhard Schiefer


Transparency in the Food Sector and especially towards consumers is an issue which receives increasingly attention in public and research. There is widespread agreement that the present state of transparency is not sufficient and needs engagement by research and the sector to move forward.
