On Wednesday April 6th the DISH Cluster, a synergy between SafeConsume, Eat2benice, FoodSafety4EU, Stance4Health and One Health EJP TOXOSOURCES, held the event “Towards a healthy and safe diet“.

The context

What we eat matters for healthy living. However, hazards in food still account for about 23 million cases of illness and 5.000 deaths in Europe every year. Besides, Non-Communicable Diseases are collectively responsible for almost 70% of all deaths worldwide.

The DISH Cluster aims to guide and support consumers towards a healthy and safe diet by improving their nutritional habits and food safety. It is made up on the synergies established by 5 project: SafeConsume, Eat2benice, FoodSafety4EU, Stance4Health and TOXOSOURCES.

The DISH Cluster is a synergy created within the Horizon Result Booster, a European Commission initiative for steering research towards strong societal impact, concretising the value of R&I activity for societal challenges.

The event

On 6th of April the DISH cluster will contribute and inspire the next directions towards a safe and healthy food style with keynotes speakers of the European Food System!

The “virtual lunch” which took place, was divided in 3 main courses, presented by Lars Munter (Danish Council for Better Hygiene):

  • an aperitif with as a warm welcome by a representative of Horizon Results Booster representatives and the 5 projects’ coordinators of the DISH Cluster 
  • a main course with the participation of keynote speakers of the European food safety system: Stef Bronzwaer (EFSA), Hans van de Velde (ADHD Europe), Eugénie Cornu (Vitagora Agri-food Innovation Cluster), Giulia Tarsitano (EuroCoop), Corina Zugravu (Public Health National Insitute in Romania)
  • and a dessert where the participants gave their contribution through an interactive session
