The need to establish a world food safety day was discussed in several United Nations general assembly (UNGA) from 2016 onwards. On December 20, 2018, a resolution was gotten by the assembly to check June 7 as the day to "celebrate the myriad benefits of safe food." Through World Food Safety Day, WHO works to mainstream food safety in the public plan and decrease the weight of foodborne diseases worldwide. "Food safety is everyone's business," as indicated by the public prosperity office.
