Consider and reflect on the topic of broadly understood food safety. This is an issue that is currently arousing wide public interest, is more and more often discussed in the media and on discussion forums of many scientific organizations. This work aims to indicate what standards of international, European and national law regulate issues related to food safety. It is also to bring closer the procedures, instruments and systems to guarantee the preservation of the quality and safety of food products. In addition to the opportunities shown to increase the level of security, it also indicates food hazards and problems. It presents organs and institutions controlling compliance with food laws and supervising product safety systems. The structure of work based on the analysis of literature serves this purpose.
