Renewed attention to food safety has propelled a shift from an outcome (or inspection-based) to a process orientation (Giovannucci & Reardon 2000). The HACCP system, which is emblematic of this change, is predicated on ensuring quality throughout the supply chain as a particular product moves from farm to retailer (USFDA 1999). It operates by identifying critical control points where hazards might occur then putting in place processes to rectify potential hazards. The theory behind this approach is that tracing food throughout the system rather than through a single component is a more preventative and systematic way of avoiding contaminants.

8, panel A). 8, panel B) the distribution of firms engaged in post-harvest and agroindustry might well be dominated by large enterprises. As the economy moves from a predominantly rural to a predominantly industrial structure, the consolidation of agroindustry might be optimal on both growth and efficiency grounds. However, in the medium term, there are important reasons why the promotion of a broad-based approach including small, medium and large enterprises might be more favourable to growth than a bias towards Post-Harvest Systems in World Agriculture 23 Percent of firms A.

Reardon (pers. ) gives the examples of Peru, Honduras, Mexico, Chile, Brazil and Argentina. FAO (1999) points to this trend in Hanoi, Vietnam, while WHO discusses it in the context of Chinese cities. In Zimbabwe, it was estimated that in order to break even, a horticultural exporter would have to pay its smallholder suppliers less than 30% the price per kilo paid to commercial farmers who delivered their goods directly to a packing plant (Coulter et al. 1999). The first three arguments adapted from Rasmussen et al.
