requirements relating to a standard of


identity, the declared quantity, declared
ingredients, or label claims, can be

misbranding,.

The spoilage, deterioration, or decomposition


of foods with the absence of any resulting
harmful substance that can lead to illness or
injury, can be considered as failure to meet
food quality requirements based on fitness
for human use or wholesomeness criteria.

WAYS OF FOOD WASTING

and parasites into food and beverages.

Workers contaminate food by:

Working while sick


Touching pimples or sores

BEST SOLUTION
Grading
Advantages
1. Better use of land: More profitable to grow crops on land
best suited to it.
2. Better marketing: it allows grading, processing, storing,
transporting and financing the produce.
3. Less equipment and laboure.
4. Costly and efficient machinery can be kept: A wheat
harvester thresher can be maintained in a highly specialized
wheat farm.
5. The efficiency and skill of the labor increased: Specialization
allows a man to be more efficient and expert at doing a few
things.
6. Farm records can be maintained easily.

Disadvantages
1. There is greater risk: When failure of crop and decreasing market price of
the product, demand in market of product.
2. It is not possible to maintain soil fertility-lack of crop rotation.
3. The productive resources i.e. land; labor and capital are not fully
utilized.
4. Irregular income of the farm as they get income only once or twice in a
year.
5. Proper Utilization of resources is not possible.
6. By product of crop are not property utilized, as numbers of livestocks are
less in number
