This study considers the influence of food subcultures within the food manufacturing environment and the adoption of food safety management practices. The influence of diversity within the overarching food safety culture of a food manufacturing operation is discussed through the use of case studies. Following a review of the literature, four subcultures were proposed (i.e., executive, operations, engineering, and technical / quality) each with its own unique identity and modus operandi. Understanding the interaction of these subcultures within the visible and invisible elements of food safety culture is critical to prevent a food safety incident and associated recall.
