World Bank: Albania among the six world countries with a serious lack of food safety

 Because of the unsafe food all over the globe, nearly 2 million people in the day are sick, who in most cases have to stop going to school, work and other vital activities, becoming thus a great cost to the society.

The World Bank in a recent study on the Food Safety Status in Developing Countries ranked Albania 6th among 90 countries around the world with regard to the capacity gap to manage food security, especially from foodstuffs of animal origin.

The Capacities Gap index in food safety management reflects the gap between food security needs and capacity to manage the situation.

The World Bank notes that Mauritania, Mongolia, Nicaragua, Libya, Venezulea and Albania have the biggest deficiencies in food safety management.

Meanwhile, some countries like Nigeria, Guinea and even Serbia have higher capacity than food security management needs, especially from animal sources.

The lack of capacity is seen in poor breeding practices, inadequate management of veterinary services, abused animals during transport, slaughter by not respecting basic health principles, inappropriate slaughter facilities and methods, and inadequate meat transport.

The World Bank is calling for, in addition to the bigger and smarter investments in food security, there is also a critical need for new regulatory approaches that put more emphasis on consumer engagement.

Various countries like Chile, India, Kenya, Ukraine, Uruguay and Vietnam have shown good food safety experiences, including public agencies, businesses and monitoring.

The World Bank stresses that countries need secure food to develop their human capital, to feed a healthy, educated and flexible workforce, and to feed a vibrant economy.

The Bank calls that it is important to understand that consumers may be at risk from the food they choose to consume and the way they choose as a source. Diets can also expose consumers to the greatest risks to food safety.
