CSR Calendar Forum on Food Safety
CRS Calendar Forum on Food Safety in Hanoi on 20 September 2016

Food safety at a glance is solely consumers’ concern. However, with closer look, it has a strong link to other issues not only of end users but also of business, particularly environment, transparency, and community. Beyond those, food in general and food safety in particular also raise questions about responsibility for next generation. In order to complete a picture of food safety, a series of CSR Calendar Fora are planned to be organized. The first one was commences on 20 September 2016 in Hanoi and on 22 September 2016 in HCMC , partnered with Association of Vietnamese Retailers (AVR), with focus on retailers – who connect with the source and give options to consumers. This Forum attracted nearly 100 participants in each city representing retailers and their suppliers, representative of consumers and consumer protection organizations, besides its regular audience.

Main objectives of the Forum were:

ü      * Highlight importance of retailers in food safety

ü       * Emphasize that food safety not only is matter of production and sale but also technology and standard

After these two fora, all participants have come to a mutual agreement that it's time now to develop food trust chain along with value chain.
