In this EatSafe report, the hazards and risks associated with consuming seven commodities sold in traditional food markets in North-Western Nigeria.
Published in Frontiers in Sustainable Food Systems, this study substantiates existing evidence suggesting that there is reason for public health concern regarding aflatoxin exposure in the Nigerian population.
In this report, EatSafe presents the results of Phase I targeted formative research specific to consumers' and vendors' knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAPs) towards food safety in Hawassa, Ethiopia.
In this review of articles published between 2000 and 2020, all but one study reported some level of success, but there is a clear evidence gap for efficiency and cost-effectiveness analyses.
We illustrate that to improve food safety within traditional markets it is essential to consider some of the motivations and incentives of the stakeholders involved and the cultural, social, and economic context in which interventions are undertaken, highlighting barriers, enablers future interventions should aim to avoid, embrace.
In this qualitative study, EatSafe examines vendors' and consumers' perceptions and practices related to food safety in Ethiopian traditional food markets.
This working paper describes the process used by EatSafe in Nigeria to identify and design innovative interventions to do so.
In conjunction with EatSafe's other Phase I (Formative Research) activities, this quantitative formative assessment sought to understand consumers' and vendors' knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP) about food safety in one traditional food market in Hawassa, Ethiopia.
To estimate consumer and vendors knowledge, attitude, and practices related to food safety, EatSafe in Ethiopia conducted in-depth interviews and direct observations among 100 respondents and a randomized experiment to identify whether improved hygiene leads to consumer behavior change.
In this synthesis review, EatSafe evaluates the characteristics of successful food safety training interventions with the goal to inform EatSafe’s own interventions in Nigerian and Ethiopian traditional food markets.
