SAFOSO is a consultancy and capacity-building company founded in 2003 by the former director of the Swiss veterinary authority, Ulrich Kihm. The privately held company is based in Bern, Switzerland.
Our very first assignments involved helping countries build capacity and learn from our experiences with Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) and its control. Later, our portfolio expanded to tackle many other human- and animal-health hazards, always concentrating on risk assessment, risk management, risk communication, surveillance and compliance with (international) trade standards. In more recent years, we have also added services in the fields of evaluation — of output, impact & outcome of projects — and animal welfare to our portfolio.
Today, just as back in the days of BSE, our expertise is most effective when we can transfer it to clients in a sustainable way, so they can continue the work independently.
