Food security has always been a priority aspect of producers, consumers and authorities, but at this moment, in which all the countries of the world work to control and stop the pandemic of COVID-19, food security acquires, if possible, more value for its role in preventing and reducing the risk of contagion.
The Spanish meat industry, continuing with its commitment to overcome this crisis, has intensified controls and has added protocols specifically designed to fight the virus and safeguard the safety of the entire population to the production chain.
Last year, the Intelligence Unit of The Economist developed, with the support of Corteva Agriscience, the second Global Food Security Index report, which analyzes the food systems of 113 countries. In this report, Spain obtained the 12th position in the category ‘quality and food safety’, confirming us as a benchmark country in food safety thanks to the strict hygiene standards and official controls that are carried out periodically to guarantee safety in food production.
