Poland’s Codex team keeping the country informed on nationwide WFSD activities


This year in Poland, there are two major events taking place: the 5-day Food Fakty e-Forum and an awareness campaign from the country’s Agricultural and Food Quality Inspectorate. The Codex Contact Point in Poland is a key part in this awareness raising, having translated World Food Safety Day promotional materials into Polish and distributed them to all institutions with which they cooperate on a daily basis, be they governmental, non-governmental, research institutes, universities, industry or consumer associations. “We also keep all interested parties informed about events related to World Food Safety Day 2021,” says the Inspectorate’s Joanna Maryniak-Szpilarska “and we encourage participation via our website.” In addition, they publish articles in the trade press.

The Codex team have also been involved in the Food Fakty event since inception and representatives of the Polish Codex Contact Point also will be giving a speech during The FoodFakty Safety Week. This will be their opportunity to highlight the role of the FAO/WHO Codex Alimentarius Commission in shaping the global culture of food safety and new general principles of food hygiene along with the HACCP system.
