Past Events

SAFE Food Safety Workshop: 18 Oct 2017

"Natural and Microbial Food Contaminants: Riskier Than We Think?" was the title of the 2017 SAFE consortium food safety workshop which took place WEDNESDAY 18 OCTOBER from 13H15 to 15H30 at the Radisson Red Hotel in BRUSSELS (just across from the European Parliament).

Christofer Fjellner, Member of European Parliament was the host and Vytenis Andriukaitis, European Commissioner for Health & Food Safety gave the keynote address.

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 aimed 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.

Keep reading to download the programme, the workshop booklet, the speaker presentations, the video summary, the print summary and related publications.
