Food Fact and Fiction: Separating Science from Myth

Published: 19-Dec-2012 | Format: Webinar | Document type: Supplier Webinar

This free webinar aims to move the debate about food science and technology onto a more secure scientific footing.
It seeks to identify problems and opportunities in the perception and reporting of controversial topics  − such as GM, nanotechnology and irradiation – and suggest ways in which science can hold more sway – within a context of consumer acceptability.
Aimed at anyone who welcomes a debate based on the science rather than mere prejudice, the webinar will be particularly useful to food sector communicators, food science and technology policy makers, and government science policy makers.
