Taking responsibility is the ecstasy ... many of us confuse our duty as responsibility .....but it is not so ...A duty which becomes a desire will ultimately become a delight and that's real responsibility.

People with character accept responsibilities. They make decisions and
determine their own destiny in life. Accepting responsibilities involves taking risks and being accountable which is sometimes uncomfortable

Responsibility starts with response to our ability and ability comes when we come out of dependence style and enter the magic world of interdependency.

we must become independent to enjoy our freedom. .. Essential to freedom is responsibility. It is by accepting and exercising full responsibility over every aspect of your life that you become truly free to live and fulfill your own unique vision.

Freedom carries with it great power. Responsibility keeps that power focused in a positive and productive direction.
Freedom, lovingly tempered with responsibility, ha ...more

Yes there are differences between Duties and Responsibilities.
1. Duty is a moral commitment to something or someone, whereas responsibility is a condition of being responsible.
2. As duty refers to moral commitment, it denotes an active feeling for doing something.
3. In case of duty, the person will be involved in activity without any self-interest.
4. Responsibility can be termed as an ability to act at ones own will, without any supervision. It is the obligation to successfully complete an assigned task.
5. In responsibility, a person is solely responsible for the entire task and its outcome. It is the responsibility of the parents to give good education to their children.
6. Once a person engages himself with some duty or if he has been entrusted with a duty, then that person fully commits himself to it.

They are both duty and responsibilities. When working with any food products it's and duty and responsibility that all food products are safe to eat. All the above pertain to sanitation which is the most important aspect whether test for flavor, etc along the packaging. ",

Think about how many food products have been recalled too many because of any number of reasons. Could be sanitation but also because of improper packaging and distribution. Improper sanitation goes right along with package and all the rest. So yes, it's duty and responsibility.
