The papers in this issue of 'Quality Assurance and Safety of Crops & Foods' focus on food safety problems in Asia. In many ways Asian food safety problems are like those of any other region of the world; primary producers work under sometimes difficult conditions, subject to environmental problems beyond their individual control, to provide raw materials which may move into long and complex supply chains. The consumer awaits the final retail provision of foods, typically at a store or restaurant, which are hopefully safe, affordable, nutritious and tasty.
