Currently, food safety is managed through the HACCP system, and different good practices and food safety standards at different levels in food supply chain. The impact of food safety culture on the food sup¬ply chain is discussed at different levels and the realisation of it is achieved by various actors in complex food networks. Innovative approaches in the food supply chain have a positive impact by raising the level of employee qualifications and motivation to work according to the principles of food safety. The food business operator or person that is responsible for food safety is a key factor in identifying weaknesses in food safety, changing entrenched habits of employees, and introducing innovative approaches to effectively and rapidly respond to changes in the internal and external environments. This can build a new dimension of food safety, the so-called food safety culture, which is based on ethics in the field of food safety. As has been shown, the current maintenance of food safety in the food supply chain can easily break down, but the introduction of food safety culture can manage this issue and enhance food safety activities in food supply chains.
