United Nations: The Samoa Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) are partnering to promote fresh produce safety and quality in Samoa. Consumers have a right to expect that the foods purchased and consumed will be safe and of high quality. Consumers should also have a right to voice their opinions about the food control procedures, standards and activities that governments and industry use to ascertain that the food supply has these characteristics.

To raise awareness of fresh produce safety and quality in Samoa, FAO and the Samoa Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc [offered] a training workshop in Apia from July 15 and 16 on fresh produce safety and quality in Samoa.

Samoa Chamber of Commerce and Industry President, Tuala Pat Leota officially opened the workshop. “Global standards on food, health and quality systems are critically important. Building the capacity of all stakeholders in quality control and standards is the main priority of this workshop”.
