As part of its food safety advocacy program, the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) through its Tarlac provincial office has teamed up with the Tarlac State University (TSU) for the implementation of a project entitled Establishment of Model Food Safety Control System (FSCS) for Food Service Operators and Ambulant Street-Food Vendors of Tarlac City.
Mrs. Karen Danez, DOST Tarlac provincial director said the project, which is funded under its regional Grant-In-Aid program, is intended to develop a protocol for food service establishments, canteen operators, and street/ambulant vendors in Tarlac City. “Through this project, we identified gaps and procedural lapses in food safety regulations implemented by the city. For example, we found out that compliance to food safety standards especially by ambulant vendors is low owing to the lack of specific guidelines. We hope to present our findings to the local government and recommend for the formulation of a comprehensive and risk-based policies to strengthen the food safety program of the City. Hopefully, this would also be adopted provincewide,” Mrs, Danez added.
