Mission statement

ICD - working to improve public health through practical partnership projects aimed at meeting food safety and nutrition goals worldwide.


Food SafetyICD's activities are currently focused on improving food safety, water quality and nutrition in developing countries by providing technical expertise for training programmes together with some logistical and financial support. Priority is given to projects meeting the objectives of the 1992 International Conference on Nutrition. Funded by companies in the food and allied industries, ICD seeks to maximise returns on its modest budget by working in partnership with UN Agencies and national governments.
