The following is a notice from the Food Safety Information Council to announce that their support resources for the upcoming 2020 Australian Food Safety Week. Community resource package for Australian Food Safety Week 2020 is now available.
It’s just under 4 weeks until Australian Food Safety Week 2020 from 14 to 21 November 2020. The theme will be ‘Food Safety – it’s in your hands’ where we will be building upon consumer behaviour established during the COVID-19 pandemic so we can continue to reduce the amount of foodborne disease.
In particular we want to help young people better understand about food safety for both their health and for helping their future employment opportunities.
We recognise that Australian Food Safety Week events will be more of a challenge this year with possible restrictions on community events and social distancing requirements. There is still a lot the community, schools and local councils can do to publicise Australian Food Safety Week. Why not put up a poster in your local library, set up a stall at your local farmers’ market (often free for community events) or share information in newsletters or social media #AFSW20
Our community package of info you can use for AFSW2020 is now available to download

To get the community interested in learning more about food safety we have partnered with our member Highfield e-learning to make online food safety basic training courses affordable and available as well as meeting our long term aim of getting course material into schools. Highfield e-learning will be making a charitable donation of 10% of course sales to the Food Safety Information Council to help us keep our important work going.

We would particularly like to thank our Gold Sponsors First for Training for making AFSW20 possible by funding our TV and radio announcements, videos, posters, artwork and consumer research. Also thanks to Australian Pasteurised Eggs who have made a major contribution to our indigenous campaign.
