In addition, smaller and/or less developed businesses and particularly the hospitality sector, are highlighted as important. Practical implications – The paper will be of value to practitioners, researchers, policy makers and other stakeholders involved in the food industry. Originality/value – In this paper, the experiences of individuals involved in the development and implementation of national food control policy are brought together for the first time.
