Colombia joins World Food Safety Day Celebrations

The requirements to ensure food safety, have become the government's main demand to guarantee the health of consumers, while representing the major technical barrier in agri-food exports and imports as well.

The Covid-19 pandemic, constitutes the largest global challenge in recent history, therefore closer collaboration between health authorities, national industry, the associations and academia, will be required to tackle the new food safety challenges in the supply chain through a multidisciplinary approach to managing risks – and in this way - guarantee consumers health and fair trade.
