Strengthening Food Safety | Discussion on Food Safety in Wet Markets; a response to Covid-19

25, Nov 2020

With over half of the world’s population now living in urban areas, food markets have become important sources of affordable food for millions of people.

Food markets in Kenya vary greatly from county to county, depending on the local culture, socio-economic conditions, food varieties and dietary preferences.
