Keeping Safety and Integrity in the Food Chain: A View from Many Sides.

26 and 27 March 2015 in Bilbao Spain
A SAFE CONSORTIUM WORKSHOP
at the International Conference "ASSURING THE INTEGRITY OF THE FOOD CHAIN"

Visit the Conference website here.

Food integrity and food authenticity are new buzz words, defined in part as undiminished foods that are in perfect condition. The SAFE consortium message is that food safety is an integral part of food integrity: a food whose origin is unknown cannot be assured to be safe. At this workshop, leading research scientists, industry representatives, consumer groups and regulators addressed the intersection of food safety and food integrity.

SAFE EVENT 2014 : Food Integrity : Beyond Authenticity and Safety.

17 September 2014, Brussels.
Food Integrity is a new buzz and those working in the area are still deciding how to define it. 'The state of being whole, entire, or undiminished or in perfect condition' is the working definition from the EU-funded Food Integrity project given to open the SAFE consortium Event last week in Brussels.

Speakers from industry, consumer groups, research and regulatory agencies talked about preventing food adulteration and managing food integrity challenges. Testing is of course necessary and SAFE member Nestlé Research Group does a lot of it: more than 5 million tests/year for microbes, persistent organic pollutants, veterinary drugs, et al. But, as John O’Brien from Nestlé Research Group said, ‘testing is not a strategy’. In fact, the strategy is consumer focus and prevention of food integrity crises.
