Twitter chat on safe dining and safe takeout food - new date 11 June



On Thursday 11 June, the International Food Information Council (IFIC) will host a Twitter chat in observance of World Food Safety Day. Anyone with a Twitter account can join the conversation, which will be led by @FoodInsight with the hashtags #WorldFoodSafetyDay and #WFSDChat and participation of @FAOWHOCodex, the Twitter account of the joint FAO-WHO food standards programme.  

As the world slowly opens back up and lockdowns are lifted, people are looking for clear answers about how they can safely dine out—eating at restaurants, getting takeout and delivery, socially distant picnics—and dine in: grilling, cooking or preparing food at home. The discussion will cover the importance of food safety practices in any dining experience.

  1. What food safety measures should be taken when ordering take out or delivery?
