Abstract: In recent years, after some unpleasant events experienced with food safety, serious steps were taken in order to protect consumer health. In the food supply chain, the traceability of product and production phases is important from the point of view of both product quality and food safety. In order to strengthen the application of health and reliability standards within the food chain, serious studies on food traceability were made in the developed countries. Also in Turkey, several legal regulations on food traceability have been put into effect. However, the consumers lacking information about food traceability and food health will extremely decrease the possibility of getting efficiency from the process. In this compilation, those steps taken in Turkey concerning food traceability and information concerning consumer awareness were evaluated.
