World Health Organization: Celebration of World Food Safety Day
“The first-ever World Food Safety Day, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in December 2018, will be celebrated on 7 June 2019 under the theme ‘Food Safety, everyone’s business.’ WHO, in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is pleased to facilitate Member States’ effort to celebrate the World Food Safety Day this year and in coming years. … Food safety is key to achieving several U.N. Sustainable Development Goals and is a shared responsibility between governments, producers, and consumers. … Through the World Food Safety Day, WHO pursues its efforts to mainstream food safety in the public agenda and reduce the burden of foodborne diseases globally” (May 2019).
