MSc Degrees in Food and Beverage Studies. Food safety and quality has become an issue of high priority nationally and internationally due to globalization of the food market. Food Safety is central to public health, poverty reduction and sustainable development. Access to safe food is a human right. Recent cases published in Kenyan media have shown that unsafe and /or poor quality food can have adverse health, political, social and economic consequences. In this realization, the World Health Organization (WHO) has urged its member States to integrate food safety in their public health and nutrition functions and to provide adequate resources to establish and strengthen their food safety programme. Priority interventions included, among others, formulation and implementation of food safety policies, regulations and capacity building. Training, among numerous others, is the most potentially useful and cost-effective intervention for improving the safety and quality of foods. The development of MSc. programme in Food Safety and Quality was strongly based on one of the findings of a needs assessment that limitations in the capacity of human resource is a major constraint to food safety operations across the various organizations mandated to carry out food safety activities. These limitations are mainly in personnel numbers and skills; upgrading of knowledge and skills necessary to update current personnel on emerging developments in food safety and quality; current training curricula in our higher learning institutions have not been adequately responsive to the global changing trends in food safety and; there is a growing recognition that food...
