We warmly invite you to the next global food safety conference, which will emphasize the need for joint global action within food safety.

The inaugural conference was held in Hong Kong in February 2016 and the conference in 2017 will follow-up on the close collaborations between important global players in the field. The theme of the conference is:

Challenges are global – So are the solutions!

The conference and your valuable input and experience at this upcoming event will add to the understanding of the food safety challenges our world is facing as well as the possible global solutions.

The conference will run from May 31 to June 2, 2017, and invited participants come from universities, global and regional authorities, NGO:s and industries.
Themes are:

  • Challenge: Do we get what we are paying for? Food authenticity and food fraud
  • Challenge: Can we prioritize? Burden of disease from food
  • Challenge: Can we share? Open access and pre-competition solutions
  • Challenge: Food is traded globally – packaging and logistics
  • Challenge: Time and Quality
  • Challenge: Consumer Trust and New Challenges for the Retailers
  • Challenge: Sustainable food production
  • Challenge: Antimicrobial resistance and microbial food safety

The conference is planned by the newly formed centre of excellence within global food safety together with collaborators around the world.
