Food Safety & Quality Summit

The Food Safety and Quality Summit scheduled for the 8th and 9th of February 2018 will bring together industry leaders and experts to discuss the latest discoveries, best practices, and newest technologies regarding food safety.

Industry professionals will be seeking answers to some of the field’s biggest challenges including: biological and chemical food safety; advanced processing and preservation methods; how to integrate the food safety policy in European countries; introducing novel technologies; how to create behavioral change for sustainability; among other important issues. As the EU strives to ensure the highest level of food safety, it is important to debate on how to protect consumers health and interests while guaranteeing a smooth operation of the supply chain market.

This Summit will focus on all aspects of food safety from the farm to fork approach to the prevention of foodborne illnesses and other food hazards outbreaks. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from experts in this field and network with them to make practical solutions and evolvements in Food Safety and Quality
