World Food Safety Day 2022
The United Nations established World Food Safety Day in 2018 to raise awareness of food safety. By coming together to incorporate good food safety practices in our lives, we can help prevent foodborne illness and promote productivity and improved health.
We all have a role to play. Whether you grow, process, transport, store, sell, buy, prepare or serve food, food safety is in your hands.
At Sugaright, we do the following to promote food safety:
Maintain food safety commitments. Everyone involved in food production, processing, distribution and retail – must ensure compliance with good food safety standards to identify, evaluate and control food safety hazards. We work with our suppliers and our customers to make sure the supply chain remains connected through good food safety practices.
Promote a food safety culture. We engage employees, suppliers and other stakeholders to grow and develop a food safety culture. A strong food safety culture is reinforced through regular training, and informational sessions on food safe
Comply with international food standards. We comply with national and international food standards to ensure food safety, which allows us to expand market access. All of our refineries are SQF certified for food safety and food quality, which allows our customers to have confidence in our food safety processes.
Food safety is based on science. Consumers usually cannot tell from sight or smell whether their food is safe, but scientists have developed tests and tools to detect unsafe food. 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 food safe. When safe practices are employed across the food chain, food becomes safe.
