SAFE EVENT 2015: Keeping Safety and Integrity in the Food Chain: A View from Many Sides, Mar 27.

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.
