For World Food Safety Day Nicaragua focuses on hygiene and health


To commemorate World Food Safety Day, the competent authorities responsible for food safety in Nicaragua led several awareness-raising, knowledge-enhancing and team-building initiatives in June 2020. The initiatives were joint efforts coordinated by the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Development, Industry and Commerce, the Institute of Protection and Agricultural Security, as well as the INFOSAN and the Codex Alimentarius offices.

Information products about “Food safety, everyone’s business”, the theme for the 2020 observance, were shared in a variety of ways, reaching an array of audiences. Mural-inspired posters were produced in the 153 municipalities of Nicaragua. Chats, training activities, hand-washing demonstrations were also held.
