NMIS pilots New Awareness Campaign

The National Meat Inspection Service piloted a new awareness campaign entitled “Orientation on Food Safety for Food Handlers and Preparers” at NMIS Training Room A last March 28, 2019.

The orientation was organized by the Meat Standards Development and Consumer Protection Division headed by its Division Chief, Dr. Edna Y. Gray. It is one of the 2019 key programs of NMIS Executive Director Dr. Ernesto S. Gonzales.

The awareness campaign aims to instill knowledge to people in the food businesses such as school canteen operators, catering services and other food enterprises about the significance of food safety in their establishments in order to protect their consumers.

The event started with a welcome remarks delivered by NCR Regional Technical Director Dr. Ronnie Ernst Duque who expressed his gratitude to the attendees of the seminar while also reminding them of their duties as food handlers.

Various topics were then discussed by NMIS Food Safety Educators. Ms. Roberta Riguer briefed the participants on the profile of NMIS and later discussed Cleaning and Sanitizing and Food Preservation and Storage. Dr. Rona Regina Reyes tackled Meat Safety: A Component to Food Safety and Pest Control and Dr. Yvette Soller discussed about Food Hygiene and Food Hazard.

Dr. Gray concluded the event with a closing message encouraging the attendees to apply what they have learned from the seminar in their respective assignments and reiterated the value of food safety in their everyday work.

Representatives from school canteens of Quezon City Science High School, Ponciano Bernardo High School, Judge Juan Luna High School and San Francisco High School attended the orientation together with food caterers from Albertus, Tri E, Eloquente and TGS Catering Services.

Completing the 30 attendees were chefs and service crew of food restaurants El Cirkulo and Kamay Kainan.

Eventually, the responsibility to conduct this awareness campaign on food safety will be transferred to Local Government Units with the assistance of NMIS Regional Technical Operation Centers through the Food Safety Educators in their respective regions.
