Dubai: Residents urged to take pledge for food safety

Residents of Dubai are urged to sign a pledge to handle food safely at home and work.

The Dubai Municipality’s (DM) ‘I Pledge to Food Safety’ campaign is geared towards housewives, children, housekeepers, and everyone who cooks or handles food.

To reach at least one million pledges in the following months, the municipality will launch food safety awareness programs in and around public locations in Dubai.

This campaign was announced at the 16th Dubai International Food Safety Conference (DIFSC), which focuses on the future of food safety and security.

“This is a social campaign in which we want to help people to understand food safety in a simple way,” said Jehaina AlAli, manager of the Permits and Applied Nutrition Section at Dubai Municipality.

“We will give practical tips on how to ensure that food is safe when handling it and cooking it,” he added.

The campaign aims to make food safety a part of everyone’s everyday life.

“We want food safety to be part of their culture,” said Sultan Al Taher, director of Dubai Municipality’s Food Safety Department.

The I Pledge campaign is a collaborative effort to raise awareness of food safety and ensure compliance.

In this day and age of online shopping, DM officials want to ensure that residents are making all efforts to ensure food safety.
