GWC Celebrates World Food Safety Day

GWC, leading logistics provider in the State of Qatar, has celebrated World Food Safety Day. The 2020 edition was held on June 7, 2020, under the theme: “Food safety, everyone’s business”, and the action-oriented campaign promoted global food safety awareness for both public and private sector providers alike.

“As a leading provider of logistics and supply chain solutions in the State of Qatar, offering high quality warehousing and distribution services, we are always seeking ways to provide the highest level of quality services to our clients,” said Group CEO Mr. Ranjeev Menon. “The food security efforts done by Qatar are very visible and gaining every support from the government, especially since the siege in 2017 and with the fight against Coronavirus: food security is paramount to our priorities, and that entails following the best practices in food safety systems.”

GWC has long been a champion of quality system, including those for food safety, with one of its two first ISO certifications being for food safety systems, most recently updated to its latest iteration, the ISO 22000:2018. This dedication to quality in food storage and distribution has led to it being trusted by remarkable retail and food distribution outlets in the country, and made GWC the provider of choice for cold chain logistics in times of economic prosperity and during crises where the company played a major role in the food supply chain in the early days of the blockade and COVID-19 outbreak in Qatar.

This year’s activities focused on the shared responsibility for food safety between countries and the entire supply chain, highlighting the role everyone plays from farm to table to ensure the food we consume is safe to eat. By celebrating the World Food Safety Day, GWC joins the World Health Organization (WHO) in pursuing food safety in the public agenda to reduce the burden of foodborne diseases globally.

“We need every link on the supply chain to take action to help prevent, detect and manage foodborne risks, contributing to food security, human health, economic prosperity, agriculture, market access, and sustainable development,” added GWC Group CEO Mr. Ranjeev Menon. “GWC holds quality, health, safety, security, and environment as its biggest priority, and nowhere is that more fundamental and needed than when dealing with food stores and supplies.”

This year’s World Food Safety Day is the second edition of the event, with the first celebration held in 2019 under the umbrella of “The Future of Food Safety” under the auspices of WHO, and in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
