Food safety considers all risks, chronic or acute, that can make the food harmful to the health of the consumers. Many food-borne hazards come from the lack of hygiene throughout the chain of processing and distribution. The purpose of this work is to address food safety problems as perceived by the consumers in Niger through traditions, stories and experiences. The food produced and consumed in Niger has been the source of collective or individual food poisoning due to the lack of good quality control. Each actor in Niger’s food production and distribution chain bears responsibility to take the necessary steps to ensure that the products placed on the market do not pose a risk to the health of consumers.
