New strategic priorities on food safety at CCFA


Mar 30, 2023

FAO has now issued a brochure that describes its work on food safety. Safe food for everyone – FAO’s work on food safety: science, standards and good practices is available in two formats (pdf and digital) and six languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish).

“FAO’s food safety priorities highlights the importance of Codex Alimentarius for food safety at a global scale and emphasizes that indeed Food safety is everyone’s business,” said Angeliki Vlachou, FAO Food Safety Officer, in unveiling the new brochure at the 53rd session of the Codex Committee on Food Additives (CCFA), which is being held this week in China, Hong Kong SAR. Reflecting on the occasion and the celebration of the 60th anniversary of Codex this year, Vlachou highlighted that providing the scientific advice that supports the establishment of Codex standards on food additives is among the longest standing FAO initiatives contributing to the safety of the global food supply.
