Actions taken by China National Centre for Food Safety Risk Assessment for World Food Safety Day


The China National Centre for Food Safety Risk Assessment (CFSA) organized a series of online activities to celebrate the second World Food Safety Day (WFSD) on 7 June 2020. The aim of these activities was to raise consumer awareness of food safety under the theme "Food safety, everyone’s business".  CFSA launched a special column on its website to promote food safety and call upon consumers to take action to prevent foodborne diseases. Consumers could read and participate in various virtual events including online lectures, animation videos, booklets and flyers on specific food safety topics on CFSA website.

One of the highlights is the video talk recorded by Chief Scientific Advisor of CFSA, Dr Junshi Chen, to explain food safety risk assessment in China. In addition, Dr Yongxiang Fan, Chair of the Codex Committee on Food Additives (CCFA), reviewed the development of China national food safety standards in another video talk.

CFSA pursues its objective to get more consumers involved in the promotion of food safety and reduce the occurrence of foodborne diseases, even beyond World Food Safety Day.
