The goal of this paper was to discuss different ideas about quality in general and food quality in particular. The first part presents the concepts of Quality and Total Quality. Nowaday, because the manufacturers are always trying to provide super quality, there is a tendency to diminish the differences between the quality and total quality concepts.  The second part presents the dimensions of the food quality, according with different researchers' opinions, and highlights the main differences between Food Safety and Food Security. In our opinion, sensory quality, food safety and food security are the three main dimensions of food quality. Also, none of them is more important than the other for food quality.
