About Us

Aligning With The WHO’s World Food Safety Day

World Food Safety Day, established in 2018 by the United Nations General Assembly, serves as a crucial platform to raise awareness about the paramount importance of ensuring food safety worldwide. This significant day is a global endeavour where the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) join hands to facilitate observance, collaborating with Member States and other stakeholders.

As leaders in their respective fields, WHO and FAO spearhead global expert groups and provide invaluable scientific advice to develop international food safety standards. Their tireless efforts are dedicated to safeguarding consumer health and supporting food trade across the globe. By working together, they strive to enhance food safety practices, protect vulnerable populations, and promote sustainable agricultural practices.
