Abstract

Supplying troops with foodstuffs is one of the underlying factors determining success in armed operations and is part of the professional activity of commanders at all levels of the military logistic structures. At the same time, the European Union's soldiers and citizens are protected consumers and potential victims in the event of targeted food modification. The consumer is aware and knowledgeable about the relationship that exists between the quality of food and his health, including the safety of the products consumed. In the era of limited trust in food products offered and supplied to consumers, producers, as well as suppliers, must prove, among other things, by having the required certificates, that they can manage food safety on an ongoing basis. In addition to the dangers related to non-compliance with the HACCP principles and good hygiene and production practices, targeted activities take on particular importance. The literature on the subject deals with the issue of deliberate contamination or food poisoning. The article thoroughly queries Polish literature sources as well as foreign ones, since the native literature on food defense in the field of management science and commodity science is very poor. The author indicates the possibilities of integration of the proposed system of food defense management with the applicable procedures in the Food Service of the Armed Forces of Poland.This article is based on the analysis of scientific publications and is the effect of observing phenomena occurring mainly in the field of HACCP and the military environment
