Honduras celebrates World Food Safety Day


For the second year, Honduras joins the celebration of World Food Safety Day on June 7th.

The objective of WFSD is to promote awareness and joint action between government sectors, producers and experts to prevent, detect and manage food-borne risks, thus contributing to improve human health, market access, tourism and sustainable development.

In Honduras, various government institutions such as the Servicio Nacional de Sanidad e Inocuidad Agroalimentaria (SENASA), la Secretaría de Desarrollo Económico (SDE), la Secretaría de Salud (SESAL), la Agencia de Regulación Sanitaria (ARSA), share responsibility for ensuring that the population is provided with healthy and safe food. To achieve this goal, they act jointly throughout the food chain and work hand in hand with the private sector and the academia with the support PAHO/WHO and FAO.

The National Codex Alimentarius Committee of Honduras carried out a series of activities, including a visit to producers, selling at the Feria del Agricultor y el Artesano located near the National Stadium in the capital, where compliance with biosecurity measures was verified before and during the sale of products to consumers.
