The Safeconsume consortium is hosting the conference “Shedding light on the dark territory of food safety – future solutions for risk reduction in domestic kitchens“. The event will be held in the city of Bucharest, Romania in June 2022.
Safe food is a shared responsibility of all actors along the food chain. As the last line of defense stands the consumer. About 40% of all reported foodborne illnesses in Europe are acquired from food consumed at home and there is a need for new approaches to help consumers mitigate risk. A combination of strategies is necessary, including as material infrastructures aiding safe behaviours, improved skills and knowledge and an inclusive food safety policy.
This conference will provide a state-of-the-art introduction to consumer practices that affect the risk of foodborne infection and a range of strategies to reduce this risk. The programme is a combination of short presentations, demonstrations, and debates. Participants are invited to share their own ideas, products, findings or viewpoint through a pitch or poster.
The conference will be of interest for policy actors, scientists, risk communicators, educators and anyone interested in food safety at the consumer part of the chain.
