Celebrating #FoodSafetyDay2022

More than twenty-five years ago, Distribution 2000 opened its warehouse doors to help customers navigate the complex food logistics space. We’ve grown our customer base year over year. Ten years ago, our business shifted to focus on the natural, specialty and organic food and beverage space. Through it all, we’ve developed an expert #d2krew in the market; our team is well-connected, knowledgeable, trusted, experienced. We’ve seen it all and we know what it takes to serve customers in this unique industry. 

Four years ago, the United Nations General Assembly established World Food Safety Day. The day has been observed ever since jointly by the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organizations of the United Nations in an effort to strengthen national food control systems.

These are the facts:

  • Foodborne illnesses affect 1 in 10 people worldwide each day
  • There are over 200 foodborne diseases – some mild, others deadly

This year’s theme is ‘Safer food, better health.’ 

We’re doing our part to ensure the food supply chain maintains integrity and exceeds established standards for food safety by making education and training a key part of our #d2kulture.

In fact, Distribution 2000 is third party audited, receiving a 99.01% in our most recent DC Food Safety and Quality Systems Audit. 

Because Food safety is everyone’s business. There is no doubt that we all have a role to play. To grow, process, transport, store, sell, buy, prepare or serve food, food safety is in all our hands. To work together is to help achieve safer food for better health.
