five keys to safer food (WHO)

On World Health Day, the World Health Organization (WHO) is highlighting the challenges and opportunities associated with food safety under the slogan “From farm to plate, make food safe.” The WHO has developed simple global health messages called the The Five Keys to Safer Food to explain the basic principles of food safety (see below) and launched a global social media campaign, asking people to tweet why food safety is important to the hashtag #SafeFood.
