The seminar will focus on the relationship between changing food chains and foodcontaminants emerging risks.Experts will be sharing their experiences and discussing the latest trends and challenges in the field.
The European Environment Agency believes that the coming decade will be pivotal for humanity. Access to nutritious and safe foods is at the heart of the challenge we face due to converging dynamics in climate, pollution, biodiversity and population growth. However, these changes are happening at a time when there is also an increasing pressure for food to be perceived to be free from contaminants and residues, with major initiatives such as the EU’s Green Deal including the ‘Strategy towards a toxic-free environment’. The risk perception of contaminants, however that term might be defined, adds complexity to the inevitable changes that are happening in food chains including the contaminants that are present.
