June 13th – 14th 2015, marks the commencement of the third Global Food Safety Forum. Being held in Beijing this year, the forum will discuss ideas in a new paper title Food Safety Technologies: Key Tools For Compliance. The paper is written by authors from the public and private sectors and explores the recent technology development in food safety regulation and how technology intersects with enforcement and compliance.
The event has attracted the attention of officials from China’s food and agriculture agencies, along with representatives of research and industry groups, all very excited about what the future holds. This anticipation has organisers excited. With China being the largest food ingredient supplier, the cooperation of some of the food and agriculture agencies will make future products from China safer to consume.
The Chinese are aware of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), particularly the foreign food safety verification aspect, which the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is in the process of implementing. Furthermore, the forum will not shy away from issues such as food fraud or economically motivated adulteration of imported or domestic food products.
