2. Dissemination of information on food and environmental contamination: compilation of quality data to support national governments in targeting risk assessment and risk management.
3. Promote the implementation of quality management systems in RALACA laboratories.
4. Facilitate the availability of reference materials and the participation in inter-laboratory tests.
5. Facilitate the response of laboratories to regional emerging food and environmental risks and scares.
6. Organize and promote training programme and continuous education through preparation of eLearning modules, thematic seminars, meetings, internships in advanced laboratories, training workshops and training courses on site and distance learning platforms.
7. Promote the integration of RALACA laboratories into national food safety programmes and national environmental sustainability programmes.

A step by step systematic planning will be established by the Board to reach all specific objectives and to bring uniformity of capacity building into participating RALACA laboratories.

The present Network will be identified under the name Red Analitica de Latino America y el Caribe (RALACA).

RALACA is a non-profit Network that brings together analytical laboratories to enhance regional capabilities to target food safety and environmental sustainability. Information sharing is key to enhancing regional opportunities.

RALACA will have the mission of promoting food safety and environmental sustainability in Latin America and the Caribbeans. To protect the health of the consumers, facilitate trade and ensure a sustainable environment it is essential to strengthen the capacity of analytical laboratories and promote efficient communication channels and share information.

Do you work with data? Here's a chance to harmonize individual quantitative food consumption data and publish it in FAO statistical databases.

FAO and WHO work jointly to improve the availability of Individual Quantitative Food Consumption Data worldwide by collating existing datasets, harmonizing them and sharing through an online platform called the FAO/WHO Global Individual Food consumption data Tool (FAO/WHO GIFT).
 

This Call for Expression of Interest, issued by FAO, is to identify institutions from Low and Middle-Income Countries, with access to Individual Quantitative Food Consumption Data that could be shared through the FAO/WHO GIFT platform, interested in entering into a contractual agreement with FAO to harmonize these datasets as well as their supporting documentation according to FAO standards. Based on such agreement FAO will cover the costs of the harmonization work.

Thematic Areas

Para contar con alimentos seguros y saludables necesitamos de todos y todas: consumidores informados, una industria alimentaria responsable, productores capacitados, instituciones de fomento productivo que incorporan la inocuidad alimentaria y la calidad en sus programas e instrumentos y científicos que generen conocimiento e investigación que apoye el desarrolle de nuevas normativas y mejores procedimientos. Si bien, el Estado promueve todo lo anterior a partir de sus políticas, planes y programas, todos y todas tenemos una cuota de responsabilidad. La Agencia contribuye a mirar el sistema alimentario completo, analizar los puntos críticos y mejorar la coordinación entre todos estos actores.

El logro de la inocuidad de los alimentos como medio para proteger la salud pública y promover el desarrollo económico continúa siendo un importante desafío en los países tanto en desarrollo como desarrollados.

En los pasados decenios se han documentado graves brotes de ETA en todos los continentes, lo que demuestra su importancia desde el punto de vista social y de salud pública.
