Suriname awareness campaign for World Food Safety Day 2020


The Government of Suriname is planning to run a food safety awareness campaign, calling upon decision makers, the private sector, civil society, and consumers to take action to keep food safe. The campaign will highlight the benefits of strengthening its food control system, in particular areas related to coverage of oversight and coordination. This initiative links up to the ongoing EU-funded FAO project called Suriname Agriculture Market Access Project.

The campaign will start on 1 June and end on 7 June 2020, which is World Food Safety Day. The messages about ‘food safety, everyone’s business’ will be relayed through the media – talk shows on television; social media – the websites and Facebook pages of the government ministries of Agriculture, Health and Trade; and short interviews of public and private sector representatives on the importance of food safety and the measures taken to keep food safe.

This awareness campaign is aimed at government agencies, private sector enterprises, NGOs and consumers, all of whom have a role to play in keeping food safe.
