LEATHERHEAD, England--()--The leading global conference for Food Contact has returned to Europe for 2013. As the only global food contact forum, the programme will once again feature presentations from national regulators from across the globe, to provide delegates with all of the most relevant food contact developments.
The full conference programme for Global Food Contact 2013 includes high level discussions of all the hot topics facing the global food contact industry. Programme highlights include: an update on Chinese Food Contact Material Regulation and proposed future developments from Lei Zhu of the China National Center for Food Safety Risk Assessment; a regulatory perspective from the Japanese National Institute of Health Sciences; a panorama of MERCOSUR legislative developments from Alejandro Ariosti of INTI, Argentina and a new discussion for 2013 from Nestle and EHEDG on Food Contact Materials for Machinery: ensuring Food Safety through the advised selection of materials.
“This is the only global food contact conference of its kind and I am really looking forward to bringing it back to Europe this year. There is a lot to take in on this year’s agenda, and it is particularly important now more than ever to be aware of how regulations in new markets are taking shape and the global diversity of this conference and its attendees reflects that,” says Hayley Marsden, Conference Director.
The conference also provides attendees the opportunity to network with food contact professionals from across the globe and throughout the whole supply chain, and allows them to get involved with the in-depth pre-conference workshops available on US-FDA and national European regulations.
