CEREAL DOCKS FOOD AND THE WORLD FOOD SAFETY DAY
Today, June 7TH, is the World Food Safety Day, proclaimed in 2019 by the United Nations General Assembly. The slogan “Safe food now for a healthy tomorrow” aims to stimulate prevention, detect and manage food-related risks by promoting the production and consumption of safe and healthy food.
It is estimated that around 600 million people in the world are affected each year by foodborne diseases and this represents a serious risk to health, especially for consumers belonging to socially disadvantaged groups. Food safety therefore plays a crucial role in reducing these diseases, as it saves lives, makes people aware of the issues and invites them to discuss collaborative approaches to promote solutions and ways to make food safer.
The guarantee we want to give to our customers is a consolidated food safety of our ingredients for the human and animal nutrition sector, thanks to the quality control that involves all stages of the production process, from the arrival of the seed to the final product.
