In an interview with journalists of the Russian Newspaper Chairman of the Union of Consumers of Russia Petr Shelishch told why Russia is one of the top countries with safest food.
"The United Nations estimates that unsafe foods cause about 600 million cases of disease each year and pose a threat to human health and the economy. Women and children, migrants and the population of countries in which armed conflict occurs are the most affected. At the same time, even in developed and developing countries, about three million people become victims of food infections and diseases of food origin every year - over 5 percent of all deaths in a year, "said Peter Shelisch. In Russia, food poisoning, as the cause of death, is recorded at a very low level. So, according to data for 2018, Rosstat, 262 people died from food poisoning. The chairman of the Union of Consumers of Russia noted that often the cause of food poisoning is not only the quality of the products themselves, but also the improper eating behavior of people. "Sometimes we create problems for ourselves. The product has deteriorated, and we are trying to save it, cut off the damaged part, process it additionally, "said Peter Shelishch. But a significant contribution to the sad statistics is made at the expense of falsification.
Safety and quality of food are different concepts, Peter Shelishch specified: "It is clear that many manufacturers deliberately save on the quality and weight of products, thus trying to reduce their cost. But in this case, it is necessary to reduce the final retail price for consumers, as well as honestly tell what the product is made of. "
