Food safety is a shared responsibility. It is important to work all along the food production chain – from farmers and manufacturers to vendors and consumers.

Unsafe food is linked to the deaths of an estimated 2 million people annually – including many children.

Food containing harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites or chemical substances is responsible for more than 200 diseases, ranging from diarrhoea to cancers.

New threats to food safety are constantly emerging. Changes in food production, distribution and consumption; changes to the environment; new and emerging pathogens; antimicrobial resistance – all pose challenges to national food safety systems.

Increases in travel and trade enhance the likelihood that contamination can spread internationally.Remember that food safety is a collective responsibility and accessing hygienic food is right of every individual.
