International conference puts food safety under the microscope
Date:1/26/2011

fication, and methods for on-site analysis of food on farms and slaughterhouses, to the potential role of nanomaterials in food safety, and innovations in combating food fraud."

The Food Integrity and Traceability Conference is jointly organised by Queen's and safefood, the North-South body responsible for the promotion of food safety on the island of Ireland. Dr Gary Kearney, Director, Food Science, safefood said: "This conference will highlight emerging trends and challenges in food traceability as well as the latest methodologies for controlling food safety risks, which can have real benefits for consumers on the island of Ireland."

Among the highlights will be Professor Garry Lee from the University of Western Australia and TSW Analytical P/L, who will present a new traceability system being trialled in the Australian pork industry. Following the Foot and Mouth crisis and the Irish pork contamination scare of 2008 and 2009, which highlighted the lack of traceability in pork production, this could have particular lessons for the pork industry in the UK and Ireland.

As the demand for organic food continues to grow, Dr Simon Kelly from the University of East Anglia will present some of the latest techniques in determining the origins of food and whether or not those labelled 'organic' are truly organically produced.

Dr Anthony Potter from Queen's will share his research into product recalls and their consequences to the food industry, while Owen Brennan from Devenish Nutrition will discuss the controversial EU ban on GM crops and its negative impact on ensuring a sustainable EU food production system.
