World Food Safety Day conference in Armenia to highlight the critical role of food standards


FAO Representation in Armenia is organizing a conference to mark World Food Safety Day in Yerevan. The event will be organized in partnership with the Ministry of Economy of Armenia and the Strategic Development Agency NGO. Under the theme "Food Standards Save Lives," the event will highlight the critical role of food standards in ensuring public health and promoting safe trade practices. As we also mark the 60th anniversary of the Codex Alimentarius Commission this year, a special reference will be made to the importance of following the provisions outlined in it to protect consumer health and promote fair practices in the food trade.

The conference will bring together experts, policymakers, and stakeholders from various sectors. Opening speeches by distinguished guests representing the state and non-state actors in Armenia will be followed by panel discussions related to various aspects of food safety.

Date: 7 June
Time: 10.00 hours Armenia time (08.00 hours CEST)
