World Food Safety Day

Delivering safe food now for a healthy tomorrow.

“Food safety is everyone’s business,” says the World Health Organization (WHO). “Food safety is a shared responsibility…Everyone has a role to play from farm to table to ensure the food we consume is safe and healthy.”

At 3M Food safety, we couldn’t agree more. And we’re proud to continue to do our part in providing innovative technology to help food manufacturers meet and maintain the highest quality standards.  

On June 7, 3M will recognize World Food Safety Day (WFSD), a day that aims to draw attention and inspire action to help prevent, detect and manage foodborne risks.  

Testing accuracy and reliability, powered by science.  

This year’s WFSD theme is “Safe food today for a healthy tomorrow.” According to the WHO, this year’s theme emphasizes that production and consumption of safe food has both immediate and long-term benefits for people, the planet and the economy.  

Since the invention of 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plates over 35 years ago, 3M Food Safety has stayed dedicated to delivering faster, reliable testing methods that support safe manufacturing. From allergen and pathogen testing to hygiene monitoring and sample collection products, we partner with food and beverage companies all over the world to help safeguard their businesses, mitigate risk and protect customers.  

Ultimately, we’re a team of scientists who are always looking for better, more innovative ways to get things done. This “market innovation” approach to business is one of the foundations to our success. 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plates and the 3M™ Molecular Detection System, for example, were product innovations that improved on existing solutions to make food safety testing easier and more efficient. 

This WFSD, we’re excited to continue our focus on the same values which have guided 3M to provide solutions that help the food industry navigate safety needs, prevention measures, risk detection, and risk management. Let’s celebrate this day – and this mission – together!
