We Are Celebrating World Food Safety Day

 June 7 each year is marked globally by the ‘World Food Safety Day’ as per the World Health Organization (WHO), observed annually to raise awareness about food contaminated by viruses, bacteria, parasites or toxins and help prevent, detect, and manage unexpected diseases, in essence contributing to sustainable human development through proper food security.

Theme of this year for World Food Safety Day is ‘Safe food today for a healthy tomorrow’

In 2018, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a decision proclaiming June 7 as World Food Safety Day, responding to the global burden of foodborne diseases, which affect individuals of all ages, particularly children under five and people living in low-income regions.

The decision notes that “there is no food security without food safety. It also emphasizes that improving food safety contributes positively to trade, employment, and poverty reduction.

World Food Safety Day is celebrated to raise awareness of issues behind poverty and hunger and ensure the need for food security and nutritious diets for all.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), the parent organizations of the Codex Alimentarius (food code) Commission, were invited to facilitate the observance of World Food Safety Day, in collaboration with other organizations.

The food we eat is kept safe through the dedicated efforts of everyone who grows, processes, transports, stores, sells, prepares, and serves it.
