Abstract: The analysis of the relationship between trade and consumer protection, attempts to highlight the issues relating to food safety in order to ensure the highest consumer protection. The theme is not the promotion of an economic globalization but the certainty of rules. Where some problems are not solved by the authorities in charge, "other" actors come into action. The non-profit organization of the agro-food sector encourages the use of minimally invasive methods of cultivation and transformation, without the use of techniques that are potentially harmful to the environment and to the consumer's health.
