BIOTECON Diagnostics celebrates World Food Safety Day

– June 7, 2019 –

In December 2018, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution proclaiming a World Food Safety Day (WFSD) on every 7th June, starting in 2019.

This will give the opportunity to take a moment and think about something many people often take for granted: food safety. We would like to draw attention and inspire action to help prevent, detect and manage foodborne risks, contributing to food security, human health, economic prosperity, agriculture, market access, tourism and sustainable development.

Join our vision on WFSD to celebrate the myriad benefits of safe food with us:

“Imagine a world where no one gets sick from food. For more than 20 years, we contribute by supporting our customers’ need for innovative safety testing by developing outstanding solutions.”

Since the spin-off in 1998, we have been highly focused on the challenges of the food industry and have developed hundreds of rapid tests to make our food safer. We have been the first to be on the market with automation solutions for the food industry. Our foodproof, microproof and vetproof kits cover topics like foodborne pathogens, spoilage organisms, viruses, genetically modified plants, animal species identification, allergen detection, and environmental and veterinary pathogens.

We have to stay focused, as shown by data of the WHO:

  • An estimated 600 million people fall ill after eating contaminated food, and 420,000 die every year.
  • Children under 5 years of age carry 40% of the foodborne disease burden, with 125,000 deaths every year.
  • Diarrheal diseases are the most common illnesses resulting from the consumption of contaminated food, causing 550 million people to fall ill and 230,000 deaths every year.

Food-borne diseases are a threat to public health. Together we can prevent them!
