Food Standards Agency launches National Food Safety Week
The Food Standards Agency has just launched National Food Safety Week, with the focus this year being on the work of FSA staff and thousands of others across the food supply chain working behind-the-scenes to ensure that food is safe and what it says it is.
Under the banner of 'the people who protect your plate', Food Safety Week (which apparently runs from 4 – 10 June – although this is not clear from the link below) will shine a light on the people working day in, day out to make sure consumers can trust the food on their plates. This wide range of people includes staff in abattoirs, and inspectors who visit vineyards, warehouses, cutting plants and dairies.
The week will also feature staff who tackle food crime and those who help to keep people living with food allergies and intolerances safe.
