Recognizing this year’s World Food Safety Day theme, “Safer food, better health" the event will highlight the vital role of food safety in saving lives of millions, and ensuring fair trade all over the world. The panel will talk about historical events which influenced early food control activities and led to critical progress in food safety management; priorities in today’s world for public and private actors to ensure the safety of food produced and consumed, and how these priorities are being addressed; and finally, the challenges and opportunities the future holds for food safety assurance.
