SAFE Annual General Meeting Charts Next Year's Course: June 2015

Members of the European Association for Food Safety, SAFE consortium decided last week to reduce membership fees, especially for smaller organisations, in an effort to increase membership. SAFE consortium is a fully independent food safety voice, counting 10 member institutes in 2015, and funded by their annual dues.
