Our vision

For example, milk collection: Hygiene problems are not only associated with production, but also with distribution.

SAFE FOOD AND CLEAN WATER - A FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT FOR ALL!

Everyone has a right to food, access to clean water, the right to education and development, a right to healthcare, a right to cultural identity and a right to habitat. Everyone has the right to live in dignity.

Unfortunately, however, food safety in many parts of Africa is completely ignored. This is a paradox, since consumers of the so-called 3rd and 4th worlds are precisely at greatest risk of infection. The reasons for this are:

  • food is produced under poor hygiene conditions,
  • the rate of germ-spread, which is high during food production and processing, is very high among the people involved,
  • the proportion of immunocompromised individuals is estimated at over 30% of the total population.

Infants, young children, pregnant women, the elderly, the sick, the immunocompromised and HIV / AIDS-positive patients are considered particularly vulnerable. In contrast to the general population, they have up to 600-times greater risk of developing a food-borne infectious disease.
