EatSafe: Evidence and Action Towards Safe, Nutritious Food

Every year, too many children and adults become ill and even die because of unsafe food. Improving food safety is a global challenge, and every day innovative solutions are being developed to make food safer around the world. However not enough of these innovations have been applied in traditional food markets, and further up the food chain, in Nigeria.

EatSafe, a program funded by USAID, is launched a national Innovation Challenge in Nigeria today, 04 April 2022. The challenge calls on all students, researchers, entrepreneurs, and innovators, passionate about food safety and/or nutrition, to share their ideas on how existing food safety innovations can be adapted and applied in traditional markets and further up the food chain.

The EatSafe Innovation Challenge is an activity led by the EatSafe Consortium, which includes the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), Pierce Mill Entertainment and Education, and Busara Center for Behavioral Economics. It is supported by Scaling Up Nutrition Business Network (SBN) and the IFSS portal.
