Food Safety in Malaysia

Till today the food safety and quality legislation in Malaysia is progressively being updated to attend specific needs of consumers and food manufacturers. Consideration needs to include external and internal challenges such as harmonisation with international and local standards as well as social and cultural habits. Establishing an effective food safety and quality programme can sometimes be perplexing especially for the food processing companies, as there are various standards and regulations to implement.

WHO states the challenges for food control authorities include:

  • increasing burden of foodborne illness and new and emerging foodborne hazards;
  • rapidly changing technologies in food production, processing and marketing;
  • developing science-based food control systems with a focus on consumer protection;
  • international food trade and need for harmonization of food safety and quality standards;
  • changes in lifestyles, including rapid urbanization; and
  • growing consumer awareness of food safety and quality issues and increasing demand for better information.
