DIT hosts United Nations

Bangladesh is in the process of revitalizing and overhauling its food inspection system through the implementation of risk-based approaches including upgrading the academic curriculum for inspectors involved in food inspection and enforcement activities. DIT is working with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) on a project titled ‘Improving Food Safety” to provide technical support for this project. As part of the project, Dr Rahman and his colleagues are attending a week long executive education programme run by DIT School of Food Science and Environmental Health in collaboration with the Academic Quality Assurance Office, the Learning Teaching and Technology Centre and the Food Safety Authority of Ireland.
