Risk communication is a very important component in the food safety risk analysis framework. The main objective of food safety risk communication is to increase understanding among various stakeholders regarding the rationale behind the decisions taken to assess hazards and manage food safety risks and to help people make more informed judgments about the food safety hazards and risks they face in their lives. Therefore, developing an effective risk communication framework is not solely based on scientific knowledge, but also involves consumer perceptions, the relationship between consumers and risk communicators, as well as regulatory strategies on food safety.

This two-day workshop aims to

  • shares about knowledge on the basics, Codex guidelines, and the key considerations of food safety risk communication
  • introduce the new concept of food information communication
  • highlight the importance to educate the public based on science
  • emphasize the significance of partnership among the stakeholders
  • discuss the challenges and opportunities in food safety risk communication among the ASEAN countries
