Festus Okechukwu Ukwueze

Unsafe and poor quality food products have dire negative impacts on the economy and public well-being, which justifies government intervention in every country to ensure food safety. This study doctrinally interrogates the legal and institutional framework for food safety and quality in Nigeria with a view to ascertain whether extant laws and regulatory institutions put in place to regulate food safety and quality in the country are adequate.
