    GHI will hold its first World Congress to address the problem of differences in regulations between countries and scientifically unjustified food scares which lead to the destruction and/or refusal of safe food. Read more about the Congress here.

    The GHI World Congress will be a platform for presenting the most suitable assays for food safety assessments within different fileds - chemistry and microbiology to genetic toxicology and genomics. Congress participants will produce a declaration which calls for and establishes a target to change regulations based on available knowledge.
