New booklets Financial support from CTA has enabled the production of four useful handbooks. Making safe food is an elementary guide to safe food handling and packaging for small-scale producers. Producers of food have to pay particular attention to hygiene and quality control through all stages of production, storage and distribution. This booklet consists of regulations relating to five aspects of food production which are interpreted by means of simple illustrations with simple captions covering the areas of: the building used to produce foods; the equipment used for processing; the personal hygiene of food handlers; the processing methods, packaging and labelling; and the storage and distribution of the processed food. Each section starts with a detailed outline which the illustrations then highlight. The booklet is intended for use by extension workers and trainers in food processing. A selection of twelve illustrations from the booklet are also available as full-colourposters which serve as training materials or reminders of good practices.

Developments in the areas of breeding and nutrition, with the aim of increased milk production, have generated a substantial amount of documentation on dairying. Recognizing this, the Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute (CARDI) has produced a bibliography which is a comprehensive study of the dairying sector in the Caribbean. In it CARDI has attempted to bring together all the available reports, research findings and other literature on dairy production in the region.
