IMPORTANCE OF FOOD SECURITY
Every year, a large number of people endure — and thousands die — from foodborne sicknesses. This is a preventable issue that is harming to both individuals and the economy, however a significant number of these sicknesses can be forestalled. Progressing sanitation enhancements, in addition to diminishing foodborne illness, can yield economic and social advantages:
*Diminished loss of income and medicinal services costs for the affected person.
*Diminished burden on the nation's health care system through improved public health.
*A more secure food flexibly, from farm to table.
Safeguarding the nation's food flexibly necessitates that the food supply be regulated and observed by science-based standards. Ensuring food safety covers an expansive scope of procedures, from on-farm production, to handling, conveyance, stockpiling, selection, preparation, and consumption.
