Food safety is a topic always high on the agenda regardless of the region, the scale of operation or commodity being produced. Behind the buzzwords and catchy phrases such as: Food safety is non-competitive, what can be done to ensure safe food and what are industry and regulators doing now to reduce this burden?
The World Health Organization (WHO) produced estimates made public last year that almost one in 10 people in the world fall ill each year after eating contaminated food and of these 420,000 people die.
This webinar will give an insight and general overview of the good, the bad and the ugly from the perspective of someone in between industry and the general public.
Key challenges and solutions to be discussed include:
- What is the scale of the problem when it comes to food safety?
- How is this the same/does this differ globally?
- Tools available and used now to ensure food safety
- Examples of good and bad reactions when a problem occurs
- What does the future hold?
