During 2021, the Food Safety Authority of Ireland delivered a significant programme of work, designed to safeguard consumers.
It was a year of opportunity and innovation for the Authority as it looked to continuously improve its structure, systems, and processes, despite the uncertain times it found itself in. The ongoing challenges of COVID-19 pandemic, Brexit and limited resources placed immense pressure on the Authority as it worked to achieve its vision of ‘Safe and Trustworthy Food for Everyone’. Despite these challenges, the team in FSAI delivered a significant and valuable programme of work and continued to implement its 2019 – 2023 Strategy; food safety legislation was enforced with 59 Enforcement Orders served on food businesses and 154 food recalls and food allergen alerts were issued; food business queries were answered; 227 risk assessments on food and food ingredients were completed; and scientific reports were published
