Developing food safety strategies and procedures through reduction of food hazards in street-vended foods to improve food security for consumers, street food vendors and input suppliers. Project Final Report.

Abstract

The project, through an enabling process, sought to improve the livelihoods of vendors and health of consumers. This was achieved through a successful coalition partnership approach comprising street food vendor NGO’s, local authorities, food standards authorities, research institutions and food laboratories. They explored the wider framework in which the policies, institutional linkages and food laws associated with street vending were carried out and by determining the sources and extent of food safety hazards that could jeopardise livelihoods and consumer health. The coalition approach began during an earlier CPHP project (R7493) and was successfully formalised during this project; new partners joined the coalition and some stakeholders/agencies substantially enhanced this project. It is anticipated that the coalition will sustainably address future food safety issues in Ghana.
