FAO and Mars Incorporated Join Forces to Strengthen Food Safety Partnership Will Focus on Enhancing Traceability Systems

FAO and Mars Incorporated will work together to achieve better food safety and quality along the food chains especially in developing countries. The two organizations have signed a partnership agreement aimed at promoting international standards for food safety and quality, improving food safety management, based on scientific principles to reduce foodborne illness, and facilitating global access to information. Under the agreement, Mars will support FAO's food safety program by providing access to food safety data and by providing experts in key areas such as traceability. The FAO-Mars collaboration will also focus on reducing food safety risks related to mycotoxin contamination. Mycotoxins, toxic substances for humans and animals, can be produced by certain fungi and may be found in all staple crops, such as maize, wheat and sorghum. Limiting the intake of mycotoxins is a critical factor to improve public health and animal health globally. The data and knowledge related to mycotoxin contamination developed by Mars Inc. would be of great benefit in expanding the functionalities of the FAO mycotoxin sampling tool, which has already drawn the interest of a number of member countries as well as other UN agencies.
