The Safeconsume consortium is inviting policy actors, scientists, risk communicators, educators and anyone interested in food safety at the consumer part of the chain to register for their final conference “Shedding light on the dark territory of food safety – future solutions for risk reduction in domestic kitchens“. The event will be held in the city of Bucharest, Romania in June 2022.
Safe food is a shared responsibility of all actors along the food chain. As the last line of defence, stands the consumer. About 40% of all reported foodborne illnesses in Europe are acquired from food consumed at home and there is a need for new approaches to help consumers mitigate risk. A combination of strategies is necessary, including as material infrastructures aiding safe behaviours, improved skills and knowledge and an inclusive food safety policy.
In this conference, you will get a state-of-the-art introduction to consumer practices that affect the risk of foodborne infection and a range of strategies to reduce this risk. The programme is a combination of short presentations, demonstrations, and debates. Also, you are invited to participate with your own ideas, products, findings or viewpoint through a pitch or poster. More datails about the Programme here.
