Food Safety Day 2018
Adopt Food Safety System – HACCP
The Food Safety Day is an annual signature event organised by the Centre for Food Safety (CFS) with a view to strengthening tripartite collaboration among the government, food trade and the public. The theme for this year is "Adopt Food Safety System-HACCP”, and a series of activities will be held to introduce this scientific and systematic approach - Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) to identify, assess and control of hazards in the food production process. As an international recognised system, HACCP is an effective and preventive way to perform food safety control by integrating the steps into each session of food production process. Poster and leaflet of the event are available here.
The Food Safety Day 2018 was held on 17 July (Tuesday) at D-park in Tsuen Wan as the kick-off event of the campaign to increase awareness of HACCP among the general public, including the trade and the consumers, and to continue making efforts to promote food hygiene in the prevention of foodborne diseases.
Representatives from food trade associations who have joined the “Food Safety Charter Scheme” were invited to participate in the signing ceremony in the Food Safety Day 2018. By signing the Charter, they promised to adopt appropriate measures in food production process to ensure food safety. Apart from this kick-off event, the CFS has also launched a set of publicity initiatives, including food safety talk series on HACCP in order to enrich the public and the trade with food safety knowledge.
