Produce safe and secure foodstuffs for public consumption

Articles

Ensuring safe and secure food production for public consumption has become a national imperative, aligning with the government’s vision of fostering prosperity and food security. Various authorities, departments, and organizations are actively promoting awareness among the public, emphasizing the importance of choosing and consuming safe and fresh foods to safeguard the nation’s food security.
Safe and secure food encompasses properly managing, storing, and processing food items to prevent infectious diseases, ensuring that consumers receive sufficient nutrition to contribute to their overall health. Recognizing this, individuals can comprehend the pivotal role that safe and secure foods play in their daily lives.
Consumers play a crucial role in this process by diligently checking food labels to select products suitable for their health conditions. Manufacturers and distributors are also urged to adhere to packaging regulations, such as order 8/2022, to prevent the distribution of expired food items. Compliance with these guidelines protects families from potential health hazards associated with unsafe food consumption.
Given the shift in consumption patterns towards instant and preserved foods, businesses must prioritize the production of high-quality, side-effect-free foodstuffs. Regulatory bodies, such as the Food and Drug Supervisory Committee, the Department of Food and Drug Administration and relevant ministries routinely inspect products, ensuring their safety and occasionally releasing lists of unsuitable items for public consumption. However, public awareness remains paramount in choosing safe and secure food options.
Foodstuff producers and distributors bear the responsibility of systematically creating products in various forms, adhering to ethical standards for both the domestic and international markets. The consumption of safe and secure foods not only enhances the nutritional intake of individuals but also contributes to overall health and fitness. They have to remove and substitute the expired foodstuffs with fresh ones at relevant retail and wholesale centres without fail, emphasizing the interests of consumers. Sellers should never violate business ethics in selling genuine and unexpired products in the market at home and abroad. Healthy and fit consumers are better equipped to fulfil their duties, thereby promoting socioeconomic development.
The government, consumers, and foodstuff producers share a tripartite responsibility to manufacture quality, fresh, safe, and secure foodstuffs. Emphasizing public and business ethics over selfish interests is crucial in this endeavour. By doing so, these foodstuffs become instrumental in improving the health and fitness of Myanmar citizens, empowering them with physical and mental strength for a more robust future.
