The food safety professionals from around Europe will be gathering to present and discuss topics that are challenging the production of safe food at a major European Symposium taking place in Cardiff in April, 20-22.

The event is being organized in collaboration with ILSI Europe and with the technical cooperation of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

The International Association for Food Protection’s European Symposium was started 11 years ago and has been shaping the future of food safety by providing a forum for the exchange of ideas with colleagues from across Europe working in industry, government and academia.

The Symposium is an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge about the latest developments and techniques in food science and safety and attracts hundreds of delegates and presenters.

Amongst the twenty five topics being considered will be: Virus testing; Risk Perception and Risk analysis. The Consumers’ View of Food Safety; Method Validation- Ensuring New Methods Meet the Requirements of European Legislation; Food Safety Decisions – Tools and Tips for Food Producers of Ready to Eat Foods; Current Issues in effective HACCP training; the Traceability Regulatory Environment in 21 OECD Countries; Risk Assessment of unintentional allergen cross contact, and much more.

The event has been supported by the Welsh Government and given local support by the UKAFP.
