Food safety is one topical issue that has become a key deliverable for any organisation in the agriculture value chain in Africa and across the World.
Whether your organisation is a retailer, a distributor or importer of food and medical supplies, or an international or local manufacturer, or even a consumer, food safety directly affects you in major ways.
From being a side issue until the past two to three decades or so, food safety has made it to the forefront for the industry, Governments and key other stakeholders due to a number of headline grabbing incidences, including the melamine case in China; and also the realisation by all the stakeholders of the real impact of low adherence to food safety fundamentals – including sickness, deaths and the real cases of where companies have lost vast sums of money and their reputation!
