The Miss Tourism Ghana 2012 contestants have called for the need for food safety and quality for national development. The call came at the opening ceremony of the Twynsty Restaurant at the Aviance AFGO airport.
It was a moment to tell the world that food for health is critical in our daily pursuit for productivity. Believing that the hospitality industry is one area of great concern, the nation as a whole should introduce a check and balance system for food service providers to ensure a degree of food hygiene and safety across board. This approach with regular healthy exercises will help to arrest certain diseases that affect our performance.
The management of Twynsty restaurant appealed to participants to be responsible by being mindful of the quality of food they buy. Mr Kwami Amiteye who was the Coordinator for the ceremony said that, food for health is food for peace and productivity.
He urged all present to share with friends and families to consider healthy eating among others as a good means for sustainable healthy development. He added that healthy diet education should be one of the core values to be espoused from an early upbringing in our homes. Fruits and vegetables are as important as drinking enough water daily, he said.
One of the contestants who spoke on their behalf expressed appreciation to the management for setting a standard in emphasizing on healthy foods for peace and productivity. She appealed to the management to ensure the sustainability of its core values.
She was hopeful the tourism sector and all stakeholders will contribute to improve and increase the health values and wealth of Ghana. Some members of the Beauty Media Peace Call Initiative in the persons of Matilda Densu, Lamisi Sam Awinongya and Mavis Eyram Dotse of the Ghana Most Beautiful fame attended the ceremony.
