Description

The next annual symposium of the AQIA will talk about the challenges of food safety in the era of sustainable development. 

The Organizing committee proposes a programme with talks on:

  • The World Health Organization's One health approach promoting multi-sectoral responses to food safety hazards and other public health threats at the human-animal-ecosystem interface and provide guidance on how to reduce these risks;
  • Tools and ideas to reduce food waste at the consumers level;
  • The Second Harvest food rescue project to capture surplus food before it ends up in the landfill to feed people rather than negatively impact environment;
  • Duality of consumers' needs: ecoresponsability or food safety?
  • A panel to discuss issues, objectives and actions in the food sector to meet the challenge of sustainable development
  • and others to come...
