A Message from Dr. David Acheson 
for World Food Safety Day 2020
(Sunday, June 07, 2020)

In recognition of the second observance of the UN-declared World Food Safety, tomorrow, June 7, The Acheson Group (TAG) would like to recognize and commend all those who work to keep the world’s food safe for consumers. As an expert team of food safety and public health consultants, TAG works with an outstanding group of clients who are genuinely interested in and focused on ensuring their food and beverage products are grown, produced, and sold in as safe a manner as possible.

Despite the adversities of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen the food industry rise to the challenge and strive to continue a dedicated focus on food safety while working to safeguard their workers. It has not been easy, and the efforts have had to evolve as COVID-19 knowledge and understanding has evolved. But, as a whole, we are weathering the storm and looking to come out the other side with some new lessons, offerings, and technologies.

We thank you all for your dedication, and we look forward to continuing to work with our long-standing clients, our newly partnered COVID-19-focused clients, and new food safety and public health clients we have yet to meet.


David Acheson

TAG President and CEO
