Explain how these cultural or demographic factors could expand beyond that one region and affect the global food supply (think cross border trading, traveling, or food manufacturing).

Your readings and lessons from the last two weeks have focused on the different ways that various cultures prepare food that may have an impact on food safety. For instance, in Japan, fish is often consumed rare, presenting different food safety issues than if the fish was consumed after cooking it to a safe temperature. Additionally, demographics of a region can affect food safety. There are many areas of the world that do not have access to a safe water supply or have access to refrigeration in order to safely preserve their raw meats. The focus of your presentation should be on ONE specific Region/Culture. The content of your presentation should explain in general how cultural practices and economic demographics affect the safety of the food supply for that region/culture. Be sure to use specific examples to illustrate the points you are making. Explain how these cultural or demographic factors could expand beyond that one region and affect the global food supply (think cross border trading, traveling, or food manufacturing).
