Statement of the United Nations World Food Programme from Country Representative in Nepal, Richard Ragan, On the Safety of WFP Food
PDF File Size: 13 KB | Download   
The United Nations World Food Programme(WFP) takes the allegations by INSEC that our food is unfit for human consumption seriously. Protecting the lives of Nepal’s most vulnerable is at the heart of WFP’s interest. We have a rigorous food quality control system that WFP follows around the world, which is designed to ensure that the food our beneficiaries receive is safe for human consumption. Here in Nepal this process involves WFP staff, suppliers, transporters, implementing partners and both government and private testing
centres to ensure food quality throughout the entire food pipeline. In relation to today’s reports in the media about samples INSEC sent to the Food Technology and Quality Control Lab, WFP has no confidence that the food samples supplied by INSEC were drawn using the appropriate sampling methodologies or procedures.
As part of WFP Nepal testing process, each consignment of food is tested either by a private lab, the Centre for Quality Surveillance(CQS), or through the testing center of the government-owned Nepal Food Corporation. Only after tests confirm that food is safe for human consumption is food delivered to beneficiaries.
