World Food Safety Day 2020 (June 7): Food safety, everyone’s business

Implementing a “One Health” approach improves food safety.

The health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment. Pathogens transmissible from animals to humans through direct contact or through food, water, and the environment have an impact on public health and socio-economic well-being.

Together governments, food producers, academia, experts, non-governmental and international organizations can combat food safety risks such as antimicrobial resistance as well as pathogenic bacteria on fruits and vegetables as a result of contact with contaminated soil or water and on animal-sourced foods.
