Qatari authorities join forces on World Food Safety Day


The Qatar General Authority for Standardization and Metrology held World Food Safety Day events on 7 and 8 June under the theme “Food standards save lives”. Celebrations took place in collaboration with the Municipality, Qatar University, and Monoprix supermarkets and included a popup stall showcasing awareness videos and emphasizing the importance of food safety to consumers and children. Leaflets were distributed and colouring sessions and games were organized for children.

There were three key messages the events were aiming to highlight:

  • The importance of a food grade mark in plastic packages for either instant use or storage
  • The importance of reading food labels and knowing food ingredients, additives, and colourants
  • The importance of the expiry date on packaging and how the consumer should read and understand it
