The Salvadorian Agency for Technical Regulation (OSARTEC) works with universities to spread World Food Safety Day messages


The Salvadoran Agency for Technical Regulation (OSARTEC) as Contact Point for the Codex Alimentarius in El Salvador has coordinated with the national academic sector to raise awareness about food safety. The efforts involved the development of multimedia content in celebration of World Food Safety Day, which highlighted the importance of food safety and its benefits at the national level.

More than fifty students from the following universities participated in this activity. All these students are pursuing food careers. They shared the following key World Food Safety Day messages:

  • University of El Salvador: Food safety has a direct impact on health
  • Catholic University of El Salvador: What was learned about food safety from the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Universidad Centroamericana “José Simeón Cañas”: Investing in food safety today will pay off in the future
  • Universidad Dr José Matías Delgado: Everyone is a risk manager
  • Evangelical University of El Salvador: If it is not safe, it is not food
  • Universidad Salvadoreña Alberto Masferrer: Food safety is based on science
  • Technological University of El Salvador: Strengthening collaboration improves food safety

Thanks to this collaboration between OSARTEC and the universities, seven World Food Safety Day videos were produced and disseminated to the public, private and academic sectors, as well as to the general public.
