Costa Rica Vice-President relays World Food Safety Day greetings in two videos


For the second World Food Safety Day, H.E. Epsy Campbell Barr, Vice-President of the Republic of Costa Rica, recorded two video messages, one in Spanish and another in English, to convey commemorative greetings to all. As the original sponsor of the resolution to establish a UN day dedicated to food safety, Costa Rica is committed to promoting the production, consumption and trade of safe food given its importance to health, well-being and livelihoods.

In the video, the Vice-President calls on the international community to recognize the importance of food safety and the need to preserve the health of all those who work in food production and food supply chains, in particular in the current COVID-19 pandemic.
