Our bodies need food to stay healthy and strong. Sometimes the food we eat can make us very sick if it is not made safely. When someone gets sick from something they eat or drink, we call it a Foodborne illness.
According to the centre for disease control, it is estimated that each year in Nigeria alone, there are 25 million cases of foodborne illness resulting in 327,000 hospitalizations and 5000 deaths.
By Law, all food handlers must have an understanding of the basic principles of Food Hygiene and know how to work safely so as to protect the food they serve from contamination.
