Food Manufacture’s new one-day food safety conference – ‘What have we learnt from recent crises?’– will use the recent horsemeat scandal as the basis for investigating a number of changes to how the industry regulates itself and the way it is policed in the future on matters related to food safety. The event aims to answer the questions: what changes are in store for manufacturers and how can they prepare themselves to meet the challenges ahead?
The conference, which takes place at the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull on Thursday October 17, will examine what lessons have been learnt by manufacturers and inspectors. It will discuss how these will influence future ingredient monitoring and traceability regimes. It will also ask what impact recent events have had on plans by regulators to move to a more ‘risk-based’ inspection regime.
