Today, 7th June 2022, the World Veterinary Association celebrates World Food Safety Day.
Veterinarians are trained in both animal health and food hygiene to ensure the safety of food of animal origin. Our profession is crucial in controlling and upholding the safety and quality of food.
The WVA supports the emphasis on food safety and One Health in the curricula of veterinary colleges and supports increased awareness of the public, food producers, and distributors, regarding the production of safe food of animal origin.
WVA calls on governments and veterinarians around the world to unite in the celebration of World Food Safety Day and to participate in and promote veterinary contributions to One Health collaborations.
