Saving Lives Through Food Standards: World Food Safety Day 2023

June 05, 2023

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), "Foodborne diseases affect 1 in 10 people worldwide each year, and food standards help us to ensure what we eat is safe."

On June 7, we recognize World Food Safety Day (WFSD), an occasion dedicated to raising awareness and encouraging action in the prevention, detection, and management of foodborne risks.

This year’s WFSD theme is: Food standards save lives. According to the WHO, this year’s theme highlights the role of established food safety practices and standards, which ensure food safety and quality.
