Technical Workshop on Food Safety and Healthy Diets

Assuring all people have access to safe, affordable and nutritious foods is essential for sustaining food security and human dignity.

Malnutrition takes many forms: hunger, stunting, micronutrient deficiencies, overweight and obesity.

The key objective of the Summit is to explore how to tackle all forms of malnutrition by increasing the availability and affordability of safe and nutritious foods for all on a sustainable basis.

The workshop will discuss the evidence on related key themes: the most common food safety challenges prevalent throughout supply chains; post harvest food loss and waste; and the double burden. These issues will be addressed using an interdisciplinary lens, combining food and health policy perspectives as well as presenting the latest technology, innovations and state-of-the art solutions.
