Do you consider yourself well informed on the Philippine food safety standards?
Every person along the food chain is responsible for food safety. However, food producers and processors hold the primary responsibility of keeping food safe for consumption. Failing to do so may result in the contraction of foodborne diseases among the population, which can then affect socioeconomic development. According to a World Health Organization commentary, the impact of unsafe food costs low- and middle-income economies like the Philippines around US$ 95 billion in lost productivity each year. To avoid these devastating effects, food producers and processors comply with food safety standards and regulations.
