World Food Safety Day: Safer food, better health

Mark your calendar on Tuesday 7 June from 10.00 – 12.00, where the Danish Agriculture & Food Council and Food Nation mark Codex Alimentarius’ worldwide World Food Safety Day for the fourth time at an online event. The theme of the day will deal with both cooperation and food safety with a special focus on plant-based foods.

Danish food is known throughout the world for high food quality and safety. This is not least due to the strong collaboration between companies and authorities, which gives Danish food companies a unique opportunity to test, develop and innovate their products and solutions early in the development process. To constantly be at the forefront of global trends and demands, it is important to look ahead and focus on how the food sector can continue to contribute to healthy and safe food and sustainable development.

Plant-based foods are growing strongly worldwide, but how do you ensure that your new plant-based products live up to food safety standards and how do they fall into a whole new product category?

Sign up for this year’s World Food Safety Day by sending an email with name, title and company to the marked with “World Food Safety Day” no later than Thursday 2 June and gain insight into the latest knowledge in cooperation and food safety by plant-based foods.
