To consider food security as a fundamental aspect of public health: - Reduce the risk of diseases transmitted by food, - Ensure the effectiveness of control systems for food, - To promote the consumption of healthy foods. That is providing citizens full confidence in the food they consume. And also, to promote an industry that sees food security as a competitive strategy DESCRIPTION: The action consists of the design, adaptation and implementation of a control system for food safety to strengthen the quality of food in countries benefiting from the action.

Coli, Listeria and Staphylococcus. * Provide a set of conceptual tools (guides, manuals and procedures) that specialize in quality systems, and training (workshops, seminars, etc.) in the processes that affect the handling of food.

I am replying to express my interest in partnering with you in the area of HACCP. I hold a PhD in Applied Microbiology. My research activities concentrate much on health risk assessment of water and food borne bacterial pathogens. You can access some of my work on the net to confirm. I am requesting for your email address and other contact details so that we can see how to come up with a joint proposal should you be comfortable with my request. Thanks.
