World Food Safety Day 2021 :
Food safety saves lives. It is not only a crucial component to food security, but it also plays a vital role in reducing foodborne disease. Every year, 600 million people fall sick as a result of around 200 different types of foodborne illness. The burden of such illness falls most heavily on the poor and on the young. In addition, foodborne illness is responsible for 420 000 preventable deaths every year.
World Food Safety Day is an important way of:
- making people aware of food safety issues
- demonstrating how to prevent illness through food safety
- discussing collaborative approaches to improved food safety across sectors
- promoting solutions and ways of being more food safe
The food we eat is kept safe through the dedicated efforts of everyone who grows, processes, transports, stores, sells, prepares and serves it. Safe food contributes to a healthy life, a healthy economy, a healthy planet and a healthy future. Food safety is your business, too. Using food safety practices at home and in our daily lives will help avoid foodborne illness. Use this guide to get inspired and get involved in World Food Safety Day!

“Safe food now for a healthy tomorrow”
The consumption and production of safe food have immediate and long-term benefits for people, the planet and the economy.
The availability of safe and healthy food for all can be sustained into the future by embracing digital innovations, advancing scientific solutions as well as honouring traditional knowledge that has stood the test of time. Our food systems need to produce enough safe food for all.
Recognizing the systemic connections between the health of people, animals, plants, the environment and the economy will help us meet the needs of the future. Local actions based on equitable, often novel, solutions and strengthened multi-sectoral collaboration are essential to meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Food safety in the time of COVID-19
While COVID-19 has not been transmitted by food, the pandemic has sharpened the focus on food safety-related issues, such as hygiene, antimicrobial resistance, zoonotic diseases, climate change, food fraud and the potential benefits of digitalizing food systems.
It has also identified weaknesses or vulnerabilities in food production and control systems. For the immediate future, minimizing disruptions in the food supply chains remains one of the highest priorities of all governments, as consumers must have reliable access to food.
A risk-based approach to food safety and to meeting food safety requirements can help keep global food supplies open and enable consumer access to food. Concerted efforts on food safety will help countries mitigate the socio-economic impacts of the pandemic and boost their resilience for the long term by facilitating and accelerating food and agricultural trade, helping to prevent the next zoonotic pandemic and transforming food systems.
How to celebrate World Food Safety Day
Organize talks and demonstrations on food safety
Invite people who grow, process, sell and/or cook food to talk about or even demonstrate what they do and how food safety is important for them. This can be in a school, workplace or community space. To make it virtual – video the talk or demonstration and share it on a social media platform. Encourage comments and discussions or even make it a social media live event so your guest can answer viewer questions.
Get the media involved
Share food safety knowledge through radio interviews, talk shows or media briefings. Contact your local newspaper or TV station to propose coverage of food safety.
Hold an outdoor activity
Organize a run, walk, dance or fitness class to publicize food safety as a key to sustaining life and promoting good health. Encouraging people to be physically active can be a good way to raise awareness about food safety in your community.
Host a workshop or conference
Bring together food experts from different businesses, sectors or disciplines to share their expertise and discuss how food safety can be improved in your sector, school, university, community or workplace. To make it virtual – move the event online and make it a webinar. Different easy-to-use online platforms are available for multi-participant discussion.
There is no food security without food safety
If it is not safe, it is not food. Only when food is safe will it meet dietary needs and help ensure that everyone can live an active and healthy life. This is also referred to as the utilization dimension of food security.
Safe food is essential to human health and well-being
The World Health Organization estimates that more than 600 million people fall ill and 420 000 die every year from eating food contaminated with bacteria, viruses, parasites, toxins or chemicals. However, these numbers represent only ‘the tip of the iceberg’ as comprehensive surveillance data for foodborne illnesses is not available everywhere. When food is not safe, humans cannot benefit from its nutritional value and cannot grow and develop.
Investing in food safety today will reap future rewards
Safe food production improves economic opportunities by enabling market access and productivity. At the same time, good practices along the supply chain improve sustainability, minimizing environmental damage and the amount of agricultural product that has to be discarded. Unsafe or contaminated food leads to trade rejections, economic losses and food loss and waste.
The ‘One Health’ approach improves food safety
Food safety requires a holistic approach, such as ‘One Health’, which recognizes the connection between the health of people, animals, plants and the environment. Animal and plant health are critical to agriculture producing enough food to feed the world. Keeping animals healthy will also minimize the risk of zoonotic pathogens (disease-causing organisms that can be transmitted between animals and humans), antimicrobial resistant organisms and more.
Food safety is based on science
Looking at or smelling food is not a reliable way to check if it is safe, but scientists have developed tests and tools to do so. Food scientists, microbiologists, veterinarians, medical doctors and toxicologists, to name a few, advise what food production, processing, handling and preparation practices are needed to make and keep food safe. When food safety practices are employed across the food chain, the result is safe food.
