The Food and Drugs Board (FDB) has held a public education on food safety and hygiene for traditional caterers at Chorkor, a suburb of Accra.

The programme was to impress on the caterers the need to operate in a clean and hygienic environment.

John Odame-Darkwa, Deputy Chief Executive in-charge of food, advocated sustained education, particularly of traditional caterers, who he said, play crucial roles in the lives of people.

He said the services of food vendors benefit almost everybody, including international tourists.

Saying that most traditional caterers are uneducated and lack appreciation for safe food handling, he cited the pounding of fufu or preparation of banku at street corners in the open and by filthy drains as some of the bad practices.
