A special message from FAO:
World Food Safety Day (WFSD) is an important recognition for the fundamental role of food safety in achieving food security, as well as its centrality in the agri-food system. Even though WFSD comes along once a year on June 7, food safety must be protected year-round to continue promoting good health and sufficient food for all.
In recognition of World Food Safety Day, the International Association for Food Protection (IAFP) will provide open access throughout June 2023 to all recorded webinars in the IAFP archives for non-members.
In celebration of World Food Safety Day, on June 7, 2023 the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and partner organizations will be holding four virtual events discussing different aspects of food safety and promoting new resources.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recently held its third annual Health Talks on Food Safety in honor of World Food Safety Day, which explored how industry and regulators can achieve “safer food, better health” by influencing consumer behavior, intentionally structuring food safety systems, and improving the supply chain.
In honor of World Food Safety Day 2022, ISO has published new standards—ISO 22003 Parts 1 and 2—for the accreditation of certification bodies that audit food safety management systems or food safety systems.
