IFC Encourages Health and Safety Compliance in Bangladesh


Dhaka - Food safety and public health issues remain a global concern, with broad implications for international trade. For Bangladesh to become a globally accepted player, high-quality food safety management is essential.

With that in mind, IFC Advisory Services for South Asia—the SouthAsia Enterprise Development Facility—has organized a five-day Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point auditor training course for the agribusiness and food processing sectors in Bangladesh. The course will help businesses in the food industry comply with good manufacturing and hygiene practices and adopt global standards.

IFC Advisory Services developed the training in response to the growing need for food safety management and environmental compliance at various levels of the country’s food industry. The course was designed to help participants identify hazards and critical control measures, as well as conform to good manufacturing and hygiene practices, enabling them to meet global standards.

Some 30 managers from multidisciplinary organizations within the food industry, including Nestle, BCSIR, Fu Wang, Biman Flight Catering Center, and Radisson Hotels, attended the training. The course will help participants undertake productivity-enhancing and quality-improving initiatives. The training faculty for program came from BSI India Private Limited.

“IFC recognized the need for food safety management training in Bangladesh early on. But the increasingly rigorous auditing standards and strict laws governing the agribusiness and food processing sectors has intensified the need for training,” said Afifa Raihana, IFC Coordinator for the Sustainability and Knowledge Center.
