Kuwait produces video for World Food Safety Day


Kuwait is a food import-dependent nation and, as such, Kuwaiti authorities are very aware of the vital role food safety plays in ensuring their citizens have enough safe and nutritious food to eat. The Public Authority for Food and Nutrition in Kuwait works with different stakeholders in the food chain to emphasise the importance of food safety and of preventing foodborne diseases.

In a statement, the Authority said: “The global burden of foodborne disease calls for collaborative and joint efforts among all stakeholders to reduce and prevent unwanted consequences of consuming unsafe food. Therefore, World Food Safety Day is an excellent opportunity to highlight the responsibilities of each and every member along the food chain as food safety is everyone's business.”

In recognition of this and of World Food Safety Day, the Government of Kuwait has produced a video celebrating the food workers of Kuwait.
