Abstract Food safety is an issue of increasing importance. Safe food starts with safe ‘ground material’, i.e., healthy animals. Incentives for the producers (farmers, slaughter plants) to apply risk management strategies are divers. In absence of a perfect (transparent) market, consumer behaviour is not enough. Additional incentives can be provided via laws or regulations that force the agricultural sector to develop and apply risk reduction programs. Dutch case studies on Salmonella in poultry and paratuberculosis in dairy cattle show that the distribution of costs and benefits from such programs may influence the motivation of farmers to join. More insight into this aspect may help to develop more efficient programs.
