World Food Safety Day 2024

World Food Safety Day is taking place on 7th June and this year; the day aims to draw attention to food safety incidents. This year’s theme underlines the importance of being prepared for food safety incidents, no matter how mild or severe they can be. 

Food safety incidents are situations where there is a potential or confirmed health risk associated with food consumption. A food incident can happen, for example, due to accidents, inadequate controls, food fraud or natural events. While being ready to manage food safety incidents requires dedicated efforts from policymakers, food safety authorities, farmers and food business operators, consumers also can play an active role. 

Darren Saunders from Keria UK said: 

“Here at Kersia UK we are supporting this important day with downloadable informative materials for our customers to use today and in training sessions throughout the year.  World Food Safety Day is hugely important at driving awareness for a topic that is a core focus of our business.” 

Our team members are also supporting our customers with their on-site initiatives, including Simon Sheppard and Paul Bagshaw doing a handwashing event at Greencore Heathrow, and Andrew and Tamara Blackler are hosting a hand hygiene day at Rachel's Dairy.
