This paper underlines the important interconnection
between tourism and food safety since the food
has the key role in the tourists’ travel decisions. The
paper deals with the food safety in tourism sector and
presents a systematic and comprehensive analysis of
law regulation on food safety and the factors of food
safety standards applied in tourism establishments
in Macedonia especially in the hospitality sector
as part of it. Its eff ectiveness fully relies upon the
relevant HACCP knowledge and skills, as well as upon
other standards and good practices, management
commitment and understanding of HACCP along with
changes in attitude and organizational structure, thus
all requiring adequate training to overcome barriers
related to human resources.
The survey points out that the creation of a profi table
hospitality industry is largely dependent on
compliance with practical and sustainable food safety
systems by all participants in the tourism, integrating
food safety into the national tourism and food safety
development policy and discusses the challenges
and recommends solutions as guidelines in which
Macedonia can develop policy and target initiatives
to strengthen food safety, especially in the small and
medium sized tourism business.
