SAFE Announcements and Events:

  • SAFE Food Safety Workshop: 18 Oct 2017

    "Natural and Microbial Food Contaminants: Riskier Than We Think" is the title of the 2017 SAFE consortium food safety workshop set for WEDNESDAY 18 OCTOBER from 13H15 to 15H30 in BRUSSELS.

    Europeans tend to be concerned about chemical contaminants in food, believing that natural and microbial contaminants are of little risk. Experts state the opposite: food microbes and their toxins can have severe health consequences. This workshop aims at strengthening the understanding of natural and microbial food contamination, debunking the myths around the word 'natural' and bringing much needed attention to this often-overlooked food risk.

    The workshop is free. More information will be available here soon.
