Food defense is not the same as food safety. Food defense focuses on protecting the food supply from intentional contamination by criminals or terrorists, while food safety focuses on production, harvesting and storage of foodstuffs.
Threats are everywhere–at work, at social events and sporting venues, at shopping centers and even at some neighborhoods. All around the world, local crime, political upheaval and terrorists are everyday occurances that must be taken into account.
