STAYING AHEAD OF FOOD SAFETY RISKS

Balancing Science-Based Safety Measures, Consumer Perceptions, and the Power of Analytics

sponsored by greenfence

In an ideal world, food safety hazards are mitigated before they can even become risks. But today, we are still at the early stages of this future development. To spur the change, three key approaches come into play:

  • Strengthening Good Agricultural Practices and HACCP applications
  • Leveraging the power of real-time measurements
  • Expanding transparency to reassure consumers

 

But which approach should we invest in the most in order to stay ahead of food safety risks? What are the current and future food safety risks, and how can they be lessened? How do we increase transparency in the case of outbreaks? How may GLOBALG.A.P. be made more resilient to protect consumers today and tomorrow? How far are we from real time measurement and positive release vs. good agricultural practices and HACCP applications? Is there a case for a stronger application of risk assessments?

BRINGING MORE GOVERNMENTS ON BOARD

Increasing Public-Private Collaboration

The road to successful private-public partnerships is mired with a wide range of obstacles, depending on the country and industry. A lack of trust seems to be the underlying cause of this situation, and yet the need for more collaboration between governmental institutions and the private sector has never been more acute, especially in the farm certification sector.

 

So how can we build trust to ease collaboration? What can a bridge between government and industry look like? Do we need to establish a new framework for private sector certification systems? How do we negotiate the differences between private sector benchmarking vs. government recognition? Should governments regulate private sector standards? And should private sector standards exceed government standards? If so, how and under which conditions is this appropriate?

Conference Dinner

sponsored by greenfence

The SUMMIT 2016 Conference Dinner is taking place at the Westerkerk, a historic site in the center of Amsterdam. Built in the Dutch Renaissance style, the beautiful old interior of the Western Church offers a special setting for a cozy atmosphere, highlighted by the chandeliers of burning candles and beautiful Duyschotorgel by Gerard de Lairesse painted shutters. A real eye catcher is the bright, undimmed sunlight pouring in from every angle via the 36 large windows and further enhanced by the monument’s whitewashed inner walls.
