SSAFE fosters the continuous improvement and global acceptance of internationally recognized food protection systems and standards through public private partnerships.
SSAFE’s work to continuously improve the food supply is strongly grounded through dialogue and partnerships with stakeholders including intergovernmental organizations, government agencies, academia and non-governmental organizations (NGO). Such relationships include the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Federation for Animal Health (IFAH), Codex Alimentarius, and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
SSAFE’s vision is to integrate food safety, animal health and plant health across food supply chains in order to improve public health and wellbeing.
SSAFE aims to maximize collaboration between different parties to strengthen the integrity of the food supply chain. Key to this activity is a commitment from SSAFE members and its partners to make effective and efficient use of limited resources by encouraging partnerships between industry, academia, governments, intergovernmental institutions and others.
For example, using our experience in delivering food safety training SSAFE is collaborating with partners within the Global Food Safety Partnership to develop a generic global model for food safety training and capacity building across the globe. The aim is to help ensure food safety training can be delivered sustainably across the globe in a way that is consistent in terms of content and delivery methods.
