In a study published in the Journal of Food Protection, EatSafe conducted a rigorous scoping review to assess vendor-facing food safety interventions carried out globally over the past 20 years, and categorized and analyzed them by type of intervention, methods, and outcomes to understand which interventions might be effective in changing vendor's knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP) towards food safety.
In an article published in Advances in Nutrition and Food Science, EatSafe conducted a desk review of food safety legislation, regulations, and standards in Nigeria and consulted with food safety stakeholders representing government agencies, NGOs, and food business operators in the Federal Capital Territory, Kebbi, and Nasarawa States.
Using a theory of change or a programme impact pathway to guide design, monitoring, and evaluation efforts is increasingly being used across various nutrition interventions, yet there are few documented examples in biofortification programmes.
Biofortification (or nutrient enrichment) of staple crops has the potential to contribute to reducing micronutrient deficiencies by increasing micronutrient intakes. In 2019, GAIN and HarvestPlus entered a partnership to lead the Commercialisation of Biofortified Crops (CBC) Programme, which aims to catalyse commercial markets for biofortified crops in six countries across Africa and Asia.
To inform the development of effective commercialisation strategies, a systematic assessment of country- and crop-specific value chains is essential to identify success factors, barriers, and opportunities.
Four regional guidelines developed by the Codex Alimentarius to improve the safety of street-vended food were examined for their application to traditional food markets. Given the gaps identified in the individual regional guidelines, a uniform international standard is needed for national, regional, and local governments to use when managing food safety in traditional markets.
In this report, EatSafe addresses the gap of food safety data within the Food Systems Dashboard (FSD) by identifying indicators relevant to national food safety systems, assess the availability of data sources, and develops a systematic, quantitative scheme to evaluate indicators against FSD inclusion criteria.
Stakeholders include any person, organization or social group that has a stake (vital interest) in the business of food and its safety. Stakeholder categories can reflect functional involvements or motives (e.g., customers, employees, investors, suppliers, vendors, communities, or the government).
