Food safety at GAIN

Achieving optimal health and nutrition requires people to be both well-nourished and free from foodborne hazards. The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) has long recognized the importance of integrating food safety to achieve global nutrition and food security goals. 

GAIN defines a "safe" food as food that does not contain a contaminant or other attributes that  increases the probability of poor health outcomes, in the context where it is consumed, and for the individual who consumes it.

Because food contamination can occur at any stage along the supply chain from farm to fork, GAIN has identified key considerations  and  risk-reduction measures, by food group, to improve food safety.
