The World Food Safety Day (WFSD), celebrated every June 7th, reaches its fourth edition this year, gaining more relevance worldwide. Its main objective is to draw attention and inspire actions to help prevent, detect and manage foodborne risks, contributing to food safety, human health, economic prosperity, agriculture, market access, tourism and sustainable development.
This year's theme is "Safer Food, Better Health" The access of safe food is essential for the health and well-being of people, animals and the environment. Only when food is safe, we can benefit from its nutritional value and the mental and social benefits of sharing a safe meal.
We all have a role to play, from farm to table, in making sure the food we eat is safe and doesn't harm our health. Safe food is essential to promoting consumer health and well-being and ending hunger, two of the 17 main UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
“Food safety is everyone's business” is the slogan for World Food Safety Day and urges that we all play a role in maintaining food safety throughout the entire supply chain, from farm to table. Act now!
