Memorial Day in
Days to go:
World Food Safety Day is an annual observance, globally recognized for its aim to raise awareness and underline the importance of safe food production and consumption. This event wasinitiated by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). World Environment Day calls for worldwide attention to food safety, as it directly impacts public health, social and economic development. Central to this global campaign is the message that access to safe food is essential for all individuals and communities, and should be upheld as a basic human right.
Established in 2018, World Food Safety Day highlights that everyone, including New Zealanders, has a part to play in safeguarding the food we consume. Approximately 2 million deaths occur globally each year due to foodborne and waterborne illnesses, emphasizing the importance of maintaining a safe food supply chain. New Zealand is renowned for its agricultural produce and flourishing food industry, making it essential that food safety practices remain at the forefront of national concern in order to protect the wellbeing of its citizens and maintain its international reputation for quality produce.
On World Food Safety Day, New Zealand participates in various activities to promote awareness for the cause. Businesses, educational institutions, and governmental organizations are encouraged to host initiatives, such as public campaigns and seminars, focused on educating people about proper food handling practices and promoting a culture of food safety. The event takes place annually on the 7th of June, providing New Zealanders with an opportunity to engage in discussions, learn about best practices, and work together to contribute to the global effort of ensuring a safe and healthy food supply for all.
