Food Nation promotes Danish food safety and quality


Food quality and safety is key to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the growing population is pressuring food producers to provide a sufficient supply of healthy, safe and accessible food. On the second observance of World Food Safety Day (7 June 2020), Food Nation used the occasion to promote the Danish food quality and safety and urge action by highlighting what everyone can do to ensure food safety.

This happened, among other things, during a webinar on Monday June 8, where Food Nation along with two speakers took a closer look at the demands of food and agriculture companies and how to use the Danish strengths within food quality and safety in sales and marketing work. The two speakers were Esben Egede, Executive Director from the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration and Søren Tinggaard, Vice President, Pork Export Strategy & Marketing in Danish Crown who gave their insights on how food quality and safety gives Denmark a strong international position on export markets and how the high level of food quality and safety has been central to Danish Crown's attainment of its international position. Furthermore, the Danish minister for food, Mogens Jensen, sent his greetings in a short video and called for increased cooperation to find the solutions of tomorrow.
