Food security not a worry for Abu Dhabi residents amid Covid-19
Those polled said they trust food facilities' ability to meet demands despite challenges arising from the pandemic.
An overwhelming 93 per cent of Abu Dhabi residents have expressed confidence in the emirate's food security standards during the Covid-19 pandemic, a new survey conducted by the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority (Adafsa) has revealed.

Those polled said they trust food facilities' ability to meet demands despite challenges arising from the pandemic. This confidence level surpasses the global average of 77 per cent, according to Adafsa.

The poll was aimed at understanding the impact of Covid-19 on grocery shopping, eating habits and consumers' perceptions of food safety and security in the Capital. It revealed that 86 per cent of the residents have confidence in the precautionary measures being taken by Adafsa to ensure food safety during the pandemic.

In May this year, Adafsa teamed up with the International Food Safety Authorities Network (Infosan) to issue a set of guidelines to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in the food sector. The document listed best practices, as well as ways to prevent the risk of exposure to Covid-19 and strengthen existing food hygiene practices.
