The ICBP had prepared for the children several competitive training sites, where they could collect stamps in the playing card and then they were rewarded for the completing tasks. 

For example at the "Farm animals" site, the children had to know which animals (from the figurines presented) live in our country, which are useful and live on the farm. Or the knowledge of spices and herbs was examined by the children at the "Plants and their Fragrances" site, where they were able to detect odours of spices.

You are on the Food Safety Information Centre Website.

Since 2002 communication with consumers has been provided by the Food Safety Information Centre operated by the Food Authority of the Ministry of Agriculture. The Ministry of Agriculture Website was designed primarily as a communication tool in relation to the public.


Food Safety Information Centre arranges for two main streams of action: accurate and promt provision of information to the public on topical food safety matters on the one hand and education of various groups of lay and professional public on the other hand. 

Our goal is to make the general public more aware of food safety in the form of topical news, transmit information from the RASFF system to the public, information on the results of research in the field of foodstuffs, healthy diet, food technologies, hygiene, etc. (articles, publishing information leaflets, popularizing lectures, health promoting projects). 

The educatuion is delivered in traditional forms such as seminars and websites, but also through new approaches such as interactive educational programmes for the public, schools, e-learning courses, etc. 

The Website also provides the comprehensive informational background for governmental and non-governmental (other than state-run) organisations involved and co-operating in the area of food safety.
