Food Safety Standard Coming

Daimon Mwakyembe, TBS Director

A new standard on food safety management will be introduced soon, it has been learnt. The standard titled Food Safety Management 22000 to be introduced in the course of the next financial year, will help hotel owners and Tanzania food growers to place into the market products that are acceptable by international standards.

This was revealed by the TBS Director, Mr. Daimon Mwakyembe during a press conference held in Arusha, recently. “We are in a globalized world and when tourists come here they never carry food from their homelands. That means people need to offer services that are acceptable internationally,” he said.
