    Livsmedelsmärkning i butiker i Halmstad: kontroll av utvalda varor samt undersökning av kunskapsläge bland butiksföreståndare2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In light of the recent scandals in Europe involving food labelling, this study will be focusing on food labelling. This study’s purpose is to investigate the extent of knowledge concerning labeling and presentation of food in the different food stores in Halmstad.

    The study was conducted out of our own interests with the guidance from the environmental health office. The study included nine different food stores of different size. The focus in this study was to verify how well five selected products follow the labeling rules. The five selected products was candy, honey, soda/energizers, freshly baked bread and self packed food. When the control was carried out it revealed some errors in the labeling of the selected products. Later when managers of the food stores were interviewed it was revealed that a connection between the errors that had been found earlier in the control and the level of knowledge about labeling existed. Because of the limited knowledge in particularly the smaller food stores there was bound to be some errors in the labeling of food in these stores. One way to reduce food labeling errors would perhaps be to offer free courses and increase information in the area of food labeling.

    Food Security from a Spatial Perspective; The Situation in Advanced and Less Advanced Economies2016In: International Journal of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering, Vol. 3, no 8Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Food security has been one of the most important policy issues on the global arena after the Second World War. The overall aim of this presentation is to describe preconditions for a sustainable food supply from a spatial perspective. Special attention is paid to the differences between advanced and less advanced economies around the world. The theoretical framework is based upon models which are explaining complex systems of factors that affect the preconditions for agricultural productions. In addition to this, theories about how population and environmental pollution change through different stages of societal development are explained. The results are based upon data of agricultural practices, population growth, hunger and nutrition levels from different countries around the world. The analysis shows that  factors which affect preconditions for agricultural production are dynamic. Factors which support the food security in the near future are a decreasing population growth, technological development  and innovation but the environmental crisis is associated to high risks. It is, therefore, important to develop environmental policies and improved methods for organic farming. A final conclusion is that the spatial pattern is clear; the food supply is sufficient within advanced economies but rather complicated in development countries.
