About 60 teachers and students in Kampong Thom province received training from the Consumer Protection, Competition and Fraud Repression Directorate-General (CCF) on food safety on April 21.

The training was conducted by the CCF’s Kamponng Thom provincial branch at Sovannaphumi School. The training aimed to ensure that students and teachers understand the importance of food safety, and of making healthy dietary choices.

Included in the training were legal regulations, including laws and regulations which ban the sale of unsafe food.

“The participants were actively involved in the training. They asked many questions, indicating that they had a strong interest in learning about food safety. By the end of the session, they had a solid understanding of the issue,” said the CCF.

Officials encouraged the participants, especially teachers, to spread food safety information to their communities, to encourage people to avoid consuming unsafe or unhealthy food.
