The effects of COVID-19 on the economy, health and social fabric of the society are huge and cannot be overemphasized. The food service and processing sector has had its fair share of devastating setbacks in the face of lock downs and restrictions while striving to ensure the populations across the world are nourished with quality and safe food products. The University of Nairobi, College of Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences, Department of Food Science, Nutrition and Technology in collaboration with Cornell University, Food Science and Technology Platform of Kenya (FoSTeP-K) and experts across the African continent invite you to a webinar dubbed ‘office hour’ as a panel of food safety experts clarify myths, misconceptions and fears of COVID-19 virus being a possible food borne disease even though there has been no clear evidence to support this misconception. The current session will also discuss mitigation strategies for the food handling and processing practitioners and the general public. The session is open to industry practitioners, academia and the general public.
