Message of Secretary
The relationship between food safety and public health is, of course, undeniable. Food safety in the food chain is one of the key areas of focus in public health, because it affects people of every age, race, gender, and income level around the world.
Balochistan Food Authority intends to support public health through ensuring food safety through internationally recognized standards. Unsafe food containing harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites, or chemical substances causes more than 200 diseases-ranging from diarrhea to cancers.
Foodborne diseases contribute significantly to premature mortality and low life expectancy in Balochistan, including being an imminent cause of child mortality and morbidity.
