The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and GFSI are expanding a long-term collaboration into a formal strategic partnership for large-scale capacity building programs. UNIDO is giving attention to food safety as a key thematic area in its inclusive and sustainable industrial development initiative where partnership with the private sector is a key instrument. It has incorporated this cooperation with GFSI into the UNIDO Terms of Reference recently announced by Li Yong, UNIDO’s director general. Both entities will jointly dedicate and mobilize resources to scale up food safety capacity building in priority regions. This partnership builds on the collaborations between GFSI and UNIDO since 2009, and follows the achievements made under the recent sustainable supplier development project implemented in Malaysia thanks to UNIDO and AEON, also based on GFSI Global Markets.
