The study focuses on three major issues of food quality in Czechoslovakia in 1950–1970.

Another major topic of the study deals with the crisis of the system of quality standards at the beginning of the 1960s, when numerous deviations from the specified ingredients and food-processing technology were permitted for cost-saving reasons. The massive wave of exemptions undermined the entire standard food quality system and its consequences were very hard to overcome.
