Food safety, everyone’s business

First-ever World Food Safety Day on 7 June makes ensuring safe and nutritious food for all 'everyone's business'. On 7 June 2019, the United Nations will be observing the inaugural World Food Safety Day after it was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in December 2018. The initiative is themed ‘Food safety, everyone’s business’ this year, highlighting that access to safe and nutritious food is the shared responsibility of governments, producers as well as individuals. The first observation of Food Safety Day this year includes a launch event in New York with a panel discussion, remarks by various experts on food safety and an interactive dialogue with panel members.
