Food safety is a shared responsibility of the diverse group that share responsibility for food safety  

1. Ensure food safe 

Governments must ensure safe and nutritious food for all and their roles are critical in guaranteeing that we can eat safe and nutritious food. Policy makers can promote sustainable food systems, fostering multi-sectoral collaboration among public health, animal health, agriculture and other sectors. Food safety authorities can manage food safety risks along the entire food chain, including during emergencies. Countries can comply with international standards established by the Codex Alimentarius Commission.

Food should be 100% Contaminant Free

Food should be 100% Chemical Residue Free

Food should be 100% Safe for Human Consumption

2. produce and store food safe

  Food producers need to adopt good practices. Farming practices must ensure a sufficient supply of safe food at all levels   today and for future while at the same time mitigating climate change and minimizing environmental impacts tomorrow. As food production systems transform to adapt to changing conditions, farmers must carefully consider optimal ways to ensure compliane and address potential risks to ensure that food is nutritious, healthy and safe for human consumption.

3. Process and keep food safe

Business operators must make sure food is safe Preventive controls can address most of food safety problems. Everyone involved in food operations – from processing to retail – must ensure compliance with programmes like HACCP, a system that identifies, evaluates and controls hazards which are significant for food safety from primary production to final consumption. Additionally, good processing, storage and preservation help retain nutritional value and food safety as well as reduce post-harvest losses.

4. Check and certify food as safe

 All consumers have a right to safe, healthy and nutritious food Consumers have the power to drive change. They need to be empowered to make healthy food choices for themselves and support sustainable food systems for the planet. Given the complexity of food safety, consumers need access to timely, clear and reliable information about the nutritional and disease risks associated with their food choices. Unsafe food and unhealthy dietary choices swell the global burden of disease.

5. Team up for safety

Food safety is a shared responsibility The diverse group that share responsibility for food safety – governments, regional economic bodies, UN organizations, development agencies, trade organizations, consumer and producer groups, academic and research institutions and private sector entities – must work together on issues that affect us all, globally, regionally and locally. Collaboration is needed at many levels – across sectors within a government and across borders when combatting outbreaks of foodborne illness globally.
