African Food Safety Network (AFoSaN)

The African Food Safety Network (AFoSaN) brings together food safety and food control institutions in Africa. It includes food and veterinary laboratories, food inspectorates and other stakeholders, uniting to strengthen food safety control systems. 

Participants collaborate and share information on food matters and on analytical techniques. Analytical methods, such as Standard Operating Procedures, are shared through its web platform. Dedicated activities include mutual training, the administration of regional proficiency tests on pesticide residues, mycotoxins and veterinary drug residues, support to internationally-recognised laboratory accreditation and the organisation of conferences.
