Food Safety and Security Challenges
Food security, as defined by the United Nations' Committee on World Food Security, is the condition in which all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life. Food safety challenges diverge by region, the responsibility for safe and nutritious food is shared by all players in the food system and the provocation is to build comprehensive food management systems that ensure the long term involvement and commitment of all concerned parties. Complications in food safety show no boundaries. While biological, chemical and physical food hazards of continue to pose significant menace to food safety across the globe; all these and related issues become formidable challenges for "providing safe food for all". Every food Establishment uses, processes, and sells food in different ways. However, the general issues and key principles of food safety remain the same, whatever the style of the operation. All food safety training programs should contain the “big three” factors that could cause food to become unsafe. Food must be kept out of harm’s way from human errors, but if you don’t train food workers what they are, they won’t know why these factors are so important to your operation.
