Food Systems Community of Practice

World Health Organization ’s Food Systems Community of Practice (COP) is a a peer-to-peer online forum for global professionals working on and sharing interest in food systems, who seek to deepen their knowledge and expertise in a variety of areas, exchange information and discuss ideas by interacting on an ongoing basis. The topics include food safety, trans fat elimination, sodium reduciton, public food procurement, reduction of harmful marketing of food and beverages, nutrition labelling, food fortification and many more. 

The COP’s goal is to expand learning potential, share diverse experiences and knowledge, encourage an understanding of new perspectives and stimulate individual and collective learning. This functional and active community of practitioners serves to streamline and expand quality technical information over time.

The Community of Practice serves to:

  • share, exchange and develop knowledge and improve the practice;
  • learn first-hand from experts at regular events;
  • access updates on WHO food safety resources and new publications;
  • share lessons learned and knowledge based on collective reflection of its members.
