Climate change has resulted in a shift in agricultural production, thus altering the food composition. There is an elevated use of pesticides and herbicides, new plant and animal strains and different production environments such as greenhouses. Although most of them are supposed to ensure that the nutritional quantity is not limited, there are questions raised about the quality. Climate change affects the nutritional quality of foods in many ways such as increased use of agrochemicals, spread of pathogens and changes in the soil structure and composition. The principal purpose of this paper is to investigate the ways in which food safety and nutrition quality are affected by climate change in Europe. The paper will also give recommendations for solutions and/or further research.
The paper explores the issues that climate change is likely to affect, as far as food safety is concerned. It identifies various issues such as agrochemical use during production and storage, marine biotoxins, and extreme environmental conditions. The paper will contribute information to answering the research question.

The paper looks into the impact of climate change on the contamination of agricultural products by fungi. It explores the various mycotoxins that have been common in the past, and the new trend brought about by climate change. I will derive information on such emerging issues from this research
This paper reviews the various food safety factors that are affected by climate change. It recommends that collaboration between relevant organizations is mandatory to address the issue. It will contribute more
