ABSTRACT
Risk assessment is a tool to estimate food safety for health. It is also one of components of risk analysis. The aim of this paper was to analyze a chosen food chain “from field to table” and related potential hazards for human health. The material of the research were a feed production plant, a farm, a meat production plant and the distribution chain. The research method were audits and surveys in all links of the examined chain, verification of used food safety assurance systems as well as the analysis of product quality assessment data. On the basis of performed research, it was observed, that there are two main hazards to the safety of end-user products: Salmonella bacteria and mycotoxins.
