Legacy Project

Building Safe Agricultural Food Enterprises (B-SAFE)

Food safety – the proper handling, preparation and storage of food – is imperative to prevent food-borne illness and disease outbreaks. The B-SAFE project works with the Government of Philippines to provide agencies with the tools and information needed to implement evidence-based risk analysis, helping the government meet obligations under domestic law and international food safety and trade protocols. B-SAFE will improve private-sector access to services, information and relationships to access food safety-conscious export and domestic markets. The ultimate goal is to improve the trade of safe, wholesome food and agricultural products.
