Abstract/OtherAbstract:
When an irradiated human food item is considered to be feasible for commercialization, two obstacles are still to be taken: governmental approval and consumer acceptance. The present Dutch situation is compared to recent developments towards approval of the technique by international authorities. The effect of this approval and of the remaining problems with respect to consumer acceptance on the Dutch market for food items is discussed. Three commodities are used as examples to demonstrate the present Dutch situation.
