The talk lasts for approximately 40 minutes and is supported by PowerPoint presentation conducted by specialized personnel. It provides training and informative assistance to schools and educational institutions in Macao to reinforce food safety practices in campus and encourage them to upgrade overall food safety and hygiene standards through self-management. These are conducive to ensuring food safety on campus and reducing risk of clusters or outbreaks of food-borne disease.


III. Guided Tour Service for the “Food Information Station”:

With a commitment to promote food safety education, IACM has set up the “Food Information Station”, which is located on the first floor of Iao Hon Hawkers' Building and is made up of the food trade zone and the exhibition hall. In the food trade zone, the public are provided with information about the Centre’s structure and functions, as well as its monitoring tasks from food import to market surveillance. The exhibition hall has chosen cow’s milk, a drink which is often consumed in everyday life, to be the theme of the exhibition to highlight the food safety concept of “From Farm to Table”, which in turn extends to five major topics, such as food and health, global food issues, etc. which serve to heighten the public’s concern about food safety and prompt them to think about the issue. Each explanatory tour, with a group of 30 persons, takes about 45 minutes.
