National Egg Day History
World Food Safety Day is an annual, global observance that aims to raise awareness about the importance of safe and nutritious food in promoting a healthy and sustainable future for all. Through discussions, campaigns, and various activities, this observance strives to facilitate a culture of food safety, stress the need for robust, effective food control systems, and emphasize the shared responsibility among governments, producers, and consumers to ensure food safety. The Observance ultimately seeks to avert foodborne illnesses and reduce food losses, contributing towards achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
Initially proposed by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), the first World Food Safety Day was observed in 2019. South Africa, being a country blessed with rich agricultural resources and diverse food traditions, still faces challenges such as foodborne illnesses, malnutrition, and the vulnerability of its food supply chains. Observing this day in South Africa is crucial in addressing these issues and strengthening food control systems within the country. Furthermore, it emphasizes the importance of sustainable agricultural practices and responsible food consumption in ensuring safety throughout the food supply chain.
In South Africa, various activities and events are held to mark this observance. These may include workshops and seminars for food safety professionals, community outreach programs promoting food hygiene practices, and various information campaigns targeting consumers, schools, and producers. Additionally, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector collaborate to organize events tailored to the local context, addressing the country's specific food safety needs. World Food Safety Day is commemorated annually on the 7th of June, and its celebration in South Africa serves as a constant reminder of the importance of safe, healthy, and nutritious food for everyone.
