ADFCA launches initiative to train housewives in food safety

In a measure that will see housewives being trained to pay keen attention to aspects of food safety, the Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority (ADFCA) has spearheaded an initiative that will focus on the same. A community initiative ‘Salamat Zadkom’ will focus on teaching housewives the essentials of food preparation and handling in a manner that does not compromise hygiene and safety.

The course, which is being offered in eight languages, will consist of a six-hour session where the participants will be offered insights into food safety and will also advocate awareness on factors related to food safety. The initiative is part of the Year of Zayed initiative and will be introduced at eight training institutes.

The spokesperson of the ADFCA, Thamer Rashed Al Qasemi, said that the initiative was part of a strategy that seeks to advocate food safety and also was a testament to the aspirations of the authority to serve society. Those who wish to participate in the programme can register their names at any one of the institutes spread across the three regions of the capital.
